Comet Pojmanski in that day has positioned in east edge of Aquila, about 14 degrees southeast from Altair. The comet has a tiny coma with its brightness of about 5th magnitude and an ion tail stretched over 10 degrees in west direction. We had only 30 minutes or so for observation of the comet till the beginning of twilight, but I could enjoy appreciating the comet with naked eyes and a binocular.
