Just spent 5 min outside looking for the comet. Easily visible without binos or scope. I suggest that anyone awake who has any interest should go and look, just East of North but becoming North from here in North Wales. Find the Plough and look right. Nathan.

We are in Mynydd Llandegai and from here it's just moving West of the Isle of Man. Fantastic views of the tail!

A comet. All we need!

Tonight is going to be fine so I will have a look. The two I have seen were interesting but not really impressive.

It is great to have a naked eye comet again after so long!

On Saturday I got some pics (stacked) with my bridge camera, it's too low for my usual kit at home.

I use Privacy Badger but it allowed me on, PB warned of 40 possible trackers on the site.

Well, chaps, the link is to a newspaper article in the Independent

... but the important bit is from NASA so you might like to try browsing there

Edit: You might start by looking here:

... ‘though of course there might be demons there too

Why I read (and donate) to the Guardian. I hate the way the independent and Washington Post tease me with 'particles'.

Sorry I even mentioned it ...

I read neither these days; I just saw something that I thought might be of interest, on this morning’s news feed.
