Comets, November 2006

Postby pbholmes » 18 Nov 2006, 22:07

At the moment, there are three readily visible comets on the go - Swan, Garrad and Faye.

The only naked eye one (from a dark enough observing spot) is Swan, currently in Aquila (visible from here in the evenings).

With binoculars, you might also see Faye, in Cetus, in the evenings, and Garradd, in Sextans, in the small hours.
