This set of images show you the apparent change of comet LINEAR for 3 days. The comet was moving to southwest in the constellation of Aries, I could easily detect its 7th magnitude coma with a binocular. And the comet had a short and fan-like dust tail because its tail was stretched to opposite direction of the Earth. The comet will continue on its journey to southern sky and became a naked-eye comet on December.
