A brand new comet, discovered in March 2020 — hence the ‘2020 F’ (6th half-month of 2020).
SWAN denotes that it was found by the Solar Wind ANisotropies (SWAN) instrument of the SOHO spacecraft studying the Sun.
Its perihelion date is May 27, 2020.
It could become naked-eye visible in a few weeks. I will keep YOU posted. Promise.
