I tried to observe a new comet that's out there - Comet MacNaught - but I was thwarted by fog and some clouds on the horizon. I got outside before dawn, to find there was no way I could see it that time.
This comet might be a great show when it comes back from its loop around the sun next week or so. I've got to see this, and add it to my ever-growing list of comets I have observed in my lifetime. I'm closing in on fifty.
