C/2017 K2 (PANSTARRS) is a newly discovered comet, found at over 16 AU from the Sun. It is now at magnitude 18.8, and bright for that distance. Perihelion passage, at 1.7 AU, is not until October 2023! This may be a a "Great Comet", according to reports, but who can say and anyway that is not for another six Years. regards maf
