  1. I’m in the US, northern Ca to be exact and we have some good clear skies to view this comet in. Looking N/NW it’ll be easier to spot in the early morning for sure as it climbs upward above our mountains. Thank you for this site and the great ‘maps’ to find it. I use stellarium software and found it easily and my 10″ scope allows some great views as well.
