Comet spotting

 Last night I took two of my boys out comet spotting. It was a lovely clear evening, the sky was the most glorious colour, the crescent moon was so crisp and sharp and there were some lovely silhouettes of the trees on the horizon. However, the hill and trees obscured our view of comet PanSTARRS, which was disappointing. It was too cloudy to see anything this evening, but hopefully we'll get another chance soon.

There's a good guide to spotting the comet at Meteorwatch

Have you managed to catch sight of it?
