One more day added to this series. The change in the appearance of Comet 2022 E3 ZTF resulting from the change of the observers perspective over four days is striking. As the comet passed by the Earth's orbit it showed the anti-tail and a much more prominent ion tail. Now that is has moved past, our prospective changes and although bright, and getting brighter, it is just a little less striking. Seeing in Tucson has degraded over the days of this series.
