    I keep meaning to have a look and keep forgetting, will try tonight if the skies clear.
    If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

          It should be moving to the evening sky soon.
          It has been too cloudy anyway.

              I haven't seen the comet and there's not much time left now.

              And it won't be back again for 6,800 years.

              Wonder if there will be people here to see it?

              BTW, found a good night sky/starmap site that adjusts for your location, and you can change the time of day to see the position of stars and satellites, and rotate the horizon. Quite fun.

                ^^^^ can't seem to get that link to work.

                just been outside as we have a clear sky....can easily see the plough but it's very hazy beneath it,
                Sadly I think I may well have missed it this time round...better luck next time eh???

                      I tried the link from the post and it worked fine for me. Have you tried just typing the address into a search engine instead?

                          The link works OK for me too. Thanks, mothhawk. Looks like a great tool.
