A double whammy – altho the meteor shower will not be spectacular, the comet is very cool.

I spotted the comet (for the second time) about 3:45AM on 11/17, by which time it was high in the NW. In binocs, it was a fuzzy yet showy blob the size of the full moon. Definitely a sight worth seeing…it keeps what’s going on here (on Earth) in perspective.

Particularly recommended for teen-agers who spend too much time bent over computers or other electronic gadgets. Consider looking up as a good physical stretch.
