Comet Holmes

I went and had a look at Holmes on Tuesday night, the only clear night this week it would seem. I trained both binos and telescope on this recently brightened comet. It wasn’t really worth the hassle of getting the scope out, as the view wasn’t much better. It is visible to the naked eye, but not, where I am (in a small city) as a comet. I don’t think it is as bright as Hyakutake (in 1999?), but I haven’t bothered looking that up. I saw an image similar to those on the Wikipedia page. It was, however, worth turning the scope to the ever-beautiful Moon.Comet Holmes
