Incoming! Comet C/2014 Lovejoy Makes An Appearance

Leave a Comment

Comet Lovejoy is at its best this week and next, especially now that the Moon is gone from the evening sky. The comet is glowing at about 5th magnitude well to the west of Orion early in the week — nice in binoculars and possibly visible very dimly to the unaided eye, depending on your sky conditions. By week’s end it’s higher overhead, nearly west of the Pleiades. See this Sky & Telescope article for more details and a finder chart.
