This page shows you a spectrum image and its wavelength dependence of intensity of the comet 2009P1 Garradd positioned in the constellation of Hercules.
Same as other many comets, coma of the comet has emission bands of carbon molecular (C2, C3) called "swan band", moreover lines of the cyan (CN), the radical of ammonia (NH2), and so on.
(emission lines with * are spectles of Earth atmosphere or light pollution)
