I took some photos but put them in the Astrophotography thread, nice photo chemisttree.
After taking the telescope out the following nite, fri 4th Jan, I discovered that I hadnt seen the comet in the binoculars, rather, the fuzzy blob I saw was M37 a faint compact open star cluster ( that almost sounds a contradiction huh ?!)................last nite I managed, for the first time, to spy C/2012 K5 (LINEAR): An evening comet visible in binoculars. it was ~ 20-30 deg above my nthrn horizon and just visible as a fuzzy blob in my 7x50 bino's. The sky was quite bright towards the horizon, the joys of doing astronomy in a large city.
Tonite I will get the scope out and have a better view :) It will be higher up as it moves through Taurus over the next few days.
I saw it briefly from the observation deck of a tall bldg last night (3-13-13). Very difficult to find in the deepening twilight but obvious through 10X50 binoculars. Unimpressive when viewed from near downtown Houston.Comet Pan-STARRS C/2011 L4 should soon be visible in the Northern hemisphere, around or shortly after sunset. Perihelion is tomorrow, March 10.
