The reports of Mag -1 are just wrong unfortunately.  They appear to emanate from a bug/error at the MPC (minor planets centre) who provide the data for CdC and others. 

 

This is a terrible pity because it is due to pass right in front of NGC2403 on the night of 23(I think) of January.  I was going to book the next day as holiday so that I could stay up to photograph it.  Now, it doesn't look like it will be worth doing. [sigh]

I just had a look for this comet tonight (before the clouds rolled in), it's currently in Cassiopeia so ought to be easy to find but I suspect it's gone to ground.  Has anyone managed to observe it visually?  I thought it might be a binocular or small telescope object, but maybe not now.

Took some pictures of the bit of sky it's in the other night, haven't looked at them yet.
