Comet C/2020 S3 Erasmus imaged on October 16th, 2020. This new comet was discovered just a month before obtaining this image has increased its brightness very quickly from magnitude 18 to 11, showing at the time of taking this image a green coma of about 3 minutes in angular size and a strong central condensation. If this trend continues, it could be observed through binoculars next November.
