Comet 2023 P1 is getting brighter, about mag 6.0 this morning, but it is embedded in the brightening predawn and in Tucson it has to clear the foothills making the visibility time brief. There was only about 15 min to see and capture the comet from when it emerged above the foothills until the sky was too bright.
