Photograph of faded P/2006 T1 (Levy)

    This is the image of faded P/2006 T1 (Levy). As you see, the comet looks split into two indicating the beginning of deterioration. This could be my last glimpse of the comet. I took four photographs of the comet, but the clarity of the images is more or less the same.
