Thanks for the news about C/2019 Y4. Have known about it for a while and was aware that it was brightening more than predicted but had not seen the orbital map for post perihelion. doesn't seem like we will get a great view from the southern hemisphere though, unfortunately.

I hope it is not like Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) which crawled along my horizon just clearing it when it was close to the Sun.
I think this one is at perihelion wholly in the northern hemisphere and below the horizon from my location.
