Comet C/2023 E3 (ZTF) imaged on January 21st, 2023, with a morphology that has changed dramatically in just two days: its coma remains at magnitude 6 with the same greenish hue and its angular size of about 13', but the ionic tail has shortened, forming several jets that are descending to the north (below), the dust tail twists more to the west (left) at the same time that it lengthens, and the anti-tail becomes more intense and it extends on a southeast to northwest axis.
