Has anyone seen it yet?
Just found out about it today on the Echo website from an article published yesterday but it says it isn't visible until 3.30am and only 10° from the horizon looking north east.
Can anyone clarify on this please because the sky is crystal clear tonight, at the moment anyway. smile

I first heard about it on 16th and saw some decent pics of it on another board; managed to catch a glimpse of it a couple of nights ago round about 1.30am but it was very faint; hardly visible at all with the naked eye and lower than previously reported, to the right of The Plough and lower down, so dropping out of view. If you find somewhere with a clear NE horizon you might just stand a chance tonight?

This is a helpful article: https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/comet-n...le-uk-july-2020-tonight-where-sky-514781

It should be getting brighter for a couple of days now as it gets closer to us.
It is a shame it is so low on the horizon and I can't see it from my garden which has lower light polution.
The 2 articles from the Echo and i news pretty much say the same thing that the best time to view it is 3.30am. Greenwood, you say you seen it at around 1.30, is that still the case? Because I ain't staying up till 3.30am haha.
