Comet C/2002 V1 (NEAT)

During the evening of November 6, 2002, astronomers using the 1.2-meter reflector at Haleakala, Hawaii, discovered a 17th-magnitude comet as part of the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) program. Through February 2003. comet NEAT was visible with naked eye.

I photographed this comet on 07. February at 17:45 UT through a Celestron refractor 102mm/f5 (exposed 2 minutes on Fujicolor Superia 800 film).
