Nobody knows...

I am glad that you saw the comet, we looked but did not see it

It's very small and nearly not visible without field glass. You can only find when you know the approximately place. Now in march it stands one hour after sunset exactly in west direction (a little right from), a few degrees over horizon. But you must have a very clear sky.

Perhaps in november we will get a bigger one.

Clouds, clouds, clouds,again today, rain yesterday, I dislike clouds, they limit photography

motorhand on March 17, 2013

Yes, here the same :-(

I had luck for a few hours at that day.

An interesting challenge and you've succeeded.

This reminds I'll have to change the right bulb tonight. It just has been made so astronomically difficult in the modern cars - almost easier to fly around the Earth.

Н-да, а я два вечера пялился в небо после заката, но так и не разглядел ее. Поздравляю, Маттиас!

An idea of the self-assertion.
