Comet Lulin (C/2007 N3)

This a very nice looking comet. I attempted to sight it this morning but thin cloud cover and a bright moon made it impossible.

I checked my copy of Skyglobe (1992) and estimate that the moon will be out of the way before Feb. 24. This will be an ideal morning for viewing, if the weather cooperates. I'll start checking a few days before.
