(3200) Phaethon in December 2017
#8
I found (3200) Phaethon at 2:40 am EST this morning, 13-Dec-2017, from my semi-suburban site near 40°N-75°W. I used an 85 mm spotting scope at 60x and a printed ST3 chart, then confirmed that it was indeed Phaethon by its subsequent movement compared to the nearby field stars.
