Wow, so cool. Hope it will be visible. :fairy:
I see its been renamed from C/2019 Q4 to 21/Borisov.

And I wonder if it will produce some shooting stars?
We have the annual Ursids meteor shower coming right at the solstice too, that's related to the Tuttle comet, wonder if there is any conflict?

As long as it's just visiting & doesn't plan to drop in & stay, it's good.
