Wide and narrow field images of C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) taken at the same time last night. The total magnitude is still 9.2 but this will fall fairly quickly if the supply of gas from the nucleus has stopped. If the NW fragment is the remainder of the nucleus then it doesn't seem very active at the moment.
