Comet Lovejoy, glowing at 4th magnitude, is now in its best two weeks. It’s nicely placed high in the early-evening sky for your binoculars or low-power, wide-field telescope. It may be dimly visible to the unaided eye under excellent dark-sky conditions — if you know exactly where to look!
Comet Lovejoy, C/2014 Q2, is now having its best two weeks for skywatchers. It’s 4th magnitude, about as bright as it’s predicted to get. Use the finder charts at the bottom of this page to find its location among the stars. Although 4th magnitude would technically make it a naked-eye object, its diffuse fuzziness means that most viewers, who live under light pollution, will probably still need binoculars.
