Shows the position, magnitude, Sun elongation, phase, rise, culmination and set time for the selected comets.
The elevation above horizon and azimuth at the twilight time are indicated to help observing comets near the Sun. This indicates if the comet is best observed on the morning or evening.
Before you can display or search comets with SkyChart, you must have previously downloaded a file with the orbital elements of comets. Click here to read more.
You can filter the comet list by name or click the “Brightest” button to sort the list with the brightest first.
