Comet Ison , spica , jupiter and its moons

Recommended Posts

Just an hour ago , looked at the spica with bino . comet ison was visible clearly very close to spica ( north west of it ) , its nucleus as a small globular cluster or a fuzzy big star , tail was visible too ( even if moon light was interfering ) . i think one can spot ison for another 4 or 5 days through binocular before it is lost in sun's glare .

saw jupiter , four big moons were clearly discernible . 3 in west to it and 1 to east .  superb sight

Very jealous, I'm too far north to see it

i think it still can be visible in edinburgh . but it does not attend favorable altitude for observation .
