Where should I be looking for the comet that is currently visible?

Asked by CWOTUS (24670points) January 1st, 2017

I’ve heard that it is currently visible, and the Connecticut skies seem clear tonight, so where should I be looking?

According to Space dot com On New Year’s Eve, the comet will be visible through a telescope or binoculars near the crescent moon, sporting a blueish-green head and thin, fan-shaped tail, NASA researchers said.

It’s hard to see. I am an amateur astronomer, I know exactly where to look, and I couldn’t find it. It’s very low. Best bet is to set up a camera on a tripod tomorrow and point it at the area of the sky and take a series of timed exposures.
