Tidied up versions of the images I took last night:

Had some weird weather today, at one point was snowing heavily but with sun shining brightly. Had me looking for a snow-rainbow . All cleared nicely just in time for sunset though, and although I str

Nice picture you have there Paulf. Your pic is the best of the 4-5 that I have seen so far. I'm still clouded out, with no chance of clear skies for another 2-3 days. Best of luck to all who are tryi

Hmmm, the reports keep changing. In December it was forecast to be the 'must see' event of 2013 (that now seems to be the domain of November's comet). Then it changed to fairly significant event and now the professional astronomers are not sure. At one stage it wad going to visible with the Mark 1 eyeball and was going to rival the full moon in terms of brightness.

:huh:

From an observing perspective I have clear skies due tomorrow (currently) and patchy cloud over the weekend.

Fingers crossed it does blow our socks off! :grin:

there's plenty of time as with most comets. it may not be a Hale Bopp but it looks a lot brighter than other recent ones. I'll be happy just to see another comet, I love 'em even if they are dim. they are special in the best sense of the word.

Just got back from work (which was just off the Cornish coast) so had a clear westerly view but with some patchy cloud on the horizon.

Definately no naked eye comet.

The boats binos are pretty pathetic and there was also a pretty good swell rolling in so it was tricky trying to stay focused on one part of the sky so no luck with the binos either... I tried!

Saw it this evening in twilight from the top of the Col de Perty (SE France) with a good western horizon. Easy in bins and the Pronto. Our observatories don't see low enough in the west so we had a spin out by car.

I think ISON in Nov was going to be the naked eye / bright as the moon comet.

OK, I only learnt about the November thingy today. Just so I'm clear on this - it is due THIS November, or has it already happened and caught me off guard again?

ISON is coming this November and will be around for a few months. If you find it on twitter it gives you loads of useless information but it also gives good links to updates.
