Comet McNaught (25 Comments) (link)
 Monday, 15-January-2007  16:33:26 (GMT +10) - by Rational

The Comet McNaught will be visible this evening just after sunset. It is the brightest comet to be seem from Earth since 1965. It will be just above where the sun set this evening for about half an hour after the sun goes down.

It's brightness will be somewhere between Venus and the Moon (the two brightest objects in the night sky) Today (weather permitting) will be the best day for viewing but it should hang around for a few more evening's before fading as it heads further and further away from the sun. Some detailed information on this comet can be found here. Thanks Scon for the heads up and information.



Don't worry people, it should still be visible for a few more days even though the 15th was the brightest.
