Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)

I observed the comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) on the night of January 14, 2023 between 02:42:44 and 03:15:51 UT which correspond to 03:42:44 – 04:15:51 local time, two days after its perihelion and at a distance of about 100 million kilometers from Earth and a magnitude of 6.7

There are two tails, a long, thin one made up of ionized gas and a shorter, broader one made up of dust.

In the following video, the apparent motion of the comet’s nucleus with respect to the stars can be observed.
