Did I see the comet?

Recommended Posts

I found out just before sunset there was going to be a binocular visible comet (I have 15x70s) somewhere near Venus. There were only three things visible at the time I took it out, the first was the obvious Venus, the second and third were these two dim objects I could only see with my binoculars, and I couldn't tell if they were stars, one appeared not to be blinking, but I wasn't sure they were so faint. The two faint objects were just above Venus. The sun was down and it was dark, though I do live in a city with a moderate amount of light pollution.

I have been meaning to point the camera in that direction and see if anything shows up. It has a nice long tail.
Seems to have brightened considerably too, I have read reports of as much as mag 8. Worth a shot at least.
