Comet McNaught

Comet McNaught should be visible for the next few days. It’s pretty close to the sun and so can only be spotted near the horizon at twilight and just before dawn, but has apparently brightened unexpectedly and is relatively easy to spot. I don’t know how easy it’ll be to find an unobstructed (not to mention cloudless) view of the western horizon but I might give it a go – naked-eye comets don’t come along very often. How to spot it: evening chart/morning chart (based on an observation point 15 degrees of latitude lower than the UK, which I think means it’ll be higher in the sky here), or a more general overview here.
