Comet McNaught

Is currently so bright that it shines right through the evening twilight, I am hoping to get a look at this sooner than later. The clouds have prevented me so far… but not everyone might have the same fate. It is rather close to the horizon so not much of a chance in a built up area. If you aren’t in the city centre then in the early evening look west into the twilight, it is rather close to the Sun so isn’t visible for long. Or in the morning, it hangs low in the east, emerging just ahead of the rising Sun – just to the right of the bright Venus. You may need some binoculars to see it.
I have seen some spectacular images, here are a few: [from leeds], [gorgeous tail], [from norway].
