Good thing I observed this comet AFTER seeing Holmes get so thinned out (diffuse). It was a very diffuse comet. If I had not experienced comet Holmes, I'm not sure if I would have even detected this comet. I found it in binoculars, and it was about the size that Holmes was several weeks before, but was very thinned out (diffuse) just as Holmes was at this very time. I compared one to the other in these reports.
