cool comet

look in the direction where the sunsets. for the next few days, just after the bright ball sets, comet mcnaught appears visible to the naked eye! it hangs just below and to the right of the bright blue evening star, venus. if youre an early riser, look to the east where comet mcnaught will precede the sun, welcoming us all to the day.

i assume that you meant "comet" and not "comment." unfortunately, no, i have not been able to because it has been stormy and cloudy every single day! i'll keep trying though because it's still visible!!

has anyone else seen it?
