Howard's Astronomical Adventures

C/2004 F4 Bradfield

Tuesday morning, April 27th, Comet Bradfield rising in the east at dawn. The comet was very dim to the unaided eye but a nice view in binoculars. The transparancy was excellent overhead at my location but the sky in the east was murky. Note M31 to the upper left of the comet. This was the best shot out of several I took.
