Comet McNaught

This comet keeps getting better. I missed it earlier this week because it was cloudy every evening, but you might be able to see it during the day. Stand just in the shadow of a building and use your closed fist to measure one fist's width east of the sun and that's where the comet should be. Be especially careful though if you're using binoculars since it is so close to the sun. This is the brightest comet since 1965.

  1. My Son, loves comets. We have been able to see it really well here on the cloudless nights. (And days)

    I love that you like these things. Your diversity is really quite appealing.
