Comet 2000WM1 LINEAR in that day was at the constellation of Sculptor Although I could observe its coma through a binocular, the tail couldn't be detected because of hazy condition. This image shows you a short tail stretched toward ENE.
From now on the comet will move to the southern hemisphere and closest to the Earth.
