    Default P/2008 Y12 (SOHO) will be of -3 magnitude??



    Hi guys, I'm still alive, though did not have much time for astronomy lately, I'm afraid.

    But I was checking a list of bright comets and it said this comet in the title will be of -3ish magnitude in September-October?? -3?? I mean brighter than Jupiter is right now?? But I checked on another site and it said about the same thing. What do you guys know about this?

    I do see one chart that predicts a -3 magnitude. However, this occurs very near conjunction with the Sun. It will probably not be visible at that magnitude due to daylight.

    But that does not mean it will not be visible before and after perihelion Milan. It just may not be that bright (-3). But I would recommend keeping an eye on it, as predictions for comets are not always reliable. It could be dimmer than anticipated, but it could also be brighter.
