Comet C/2012 K5 (Linear): finding chart
Comet C/2012 K5 was discovered on 28 May 2012 by the Linear automated survey, New Mexico (USA). It is getting a bit closer to the Earth and will reach a minimum distance of about 45 millions of km by the end of the year, reaching mag. 8 or so.
The chart above shows its path across the sky up to Dec. 30, 2012. Each position is plotted at 0:00 UT.
To plot the chart, we used TheSkySix from Software Bisque.
