Comet C/2013 V5 Oukaimeden

20140922 - This comet is now much brighter than siding spring comet, and is rising in the evening sky. I am just able to see the comet over the fence, when at 25-15 degrees Alt.

update 20140923 - A very different view of this comet from the other side of the sun. Captured in the STEREO HI1B imager from 20140920. Two tail spikes at right angles.

20140926 -  In STEREO  HI1B images of 20140921, the comet gas/ion tail are dynamically affected by passing solar winds...

20140926 - later this day, here is the comet again from my back yard with EON80mm and Canon 450D , exp60sec iso 800 mono.

A comparison between these two comets.
20141003 - The two comets again, there is a third but I could not find it.
