Video showing movement in Comet C/2019 Y4 ATLAS from Lichfield 16/4/2020

Taken from my backyard 16/4/2020 over 3 hours.

Not very good but it is my first ever attempt at doing something like this!

…And it shows some movement so I am very pleased

Created from 39 images – above is roughly 3 hours compressed into about 30 seconds. I have another 90 mins data so hope to produce better video in next few days.

Watch the two stars just to left of comet – you can see the comet get closer to them as video progresses.

Far better video showing movement of this comet on Youtube can be seen here https://youtu.be/4Ftb1wbbKcA

NB This comet has recently got lot brighter and the video shows a tail evident to right of nucleus (comet is fuzzy blob top left)
