C2017 S3 PanSTARRS

My sketch below, from field notes/sketch, showing a bright star, then two in a line with an off-set pair.  The comet was nearest this brighter star (HIP 17211).  VERY dim comet with no condensation, about Jupiter-sized.  It "dissolved" at 200x into the sky background.  (Click on image below to enlarge)


 Inverse view as per www.TheSkyLive.com a couple of hours later.
