Comet Visible with Binoculars

While everyone is still checking out 17/P Holmes, it's easy to forget another comet is passing through. Not the biggest or brightest of the comets, but still a nice view if you've got some nice equipment; even a pair of 10x50 binoculars will do.

Check out Sky and Telescope's Observing blog for more detailed information and charts to help you locate it.

I found a new (to me) astronomy/astrophotography blog called Flintstone Stargazing, and its really cool. Check it out; this guy even has some new pics of Comet 8P/Tuttle from this year like the one to the right!

EDIT: Flintstone Stargazing rocks. It's going on the blogroll!
