Weather Talk: Comet should be visible tonight if sky cooperates
This comet is not very bright, so you will need a clear sky. Binoculars will help. It will look like a faint fuzzy star with a short tail. This comet has been visible throughout the Southern Hemisphere over the past few weeks and is only becoming visible to us this week. Although unspectacular, it is nonetheless a comet and is worth a look if you have any interest.
Another comet, ISON, will visit our part of the solar system in November and could be much brighter, depending on its interaction with the sun.
