Michael Jäger's image from April 7th
(re-uploaded via Tinypic)



and a trajectory for a longer period (April-May 2009):


P.S. Note that it passes now across the same area where 8P/Tuttle was in Dec.2007. But the last one was quickly heading southwards, and the new one will stay circumpolar until late May - early June, while slowly moving to SE - towards the Sun (minimal elongation 1.5deg. in July)
