Hello All,

Comet P/2021 J3 (ATLAS) does not show much detail in these images for being magnitude 18.4, of course, the images collected did not look to good so must not have been a very clear sky. Rather amazing that it probably reached magnitude 17 at perihelion back in July 2019 and Michael, Roland, Maik, Uwe and all the other members missed it, could have been Comet 421P/GermanCometGroup but it must have been a long cloudy summer and year in Germany in 2019. My scopes were sitting in boxes in an old shed in North Dakota back then so not my fault. Since it only has a 26.42 year orbit one would assume that it probably has been imaged by someone in the past and may indeed become Comet 421P/???, time will tell.

By the way, if Germany can make it out of that tough group they are in at the European Cup they might have a chance to win it all since my fellow Icelanders somehow were eliminated before this summer.
