A present there are no bright comets visible. Newly discovered 2023 E1 (Atlas) is next up to be brighter predicted to be about mag 8-9 at the end of June, a decent telescope object. At present the comet is still only mag 12.5 but is showing coma and a nice green color. This image is 5 x 120 sec with alignment on the comet making the stars trail due to the movement of the comet at about 1" per minute.
