Comet Lovejoy, C/2014 Q2, is now putting on a great show for skywatchers! Yes, even in Connecticut . It’s at 4th magnitude and not expected to get much brighter but still a neat object to find in the winter sky. If you can find the constellation Orion after it rises in the east just after 6pm, you can find the comet. Look for a green fuzzy star to the right of it about halfway up to the constellation Pleiades. Unless your in a dark sky you had best use binoculars to find this one. If your lucky to get out of the city and into some dark skies you should pick it out no problem.
I went out tonight to my dark sky location and took a couple if images of it. The first one is a wide angle one showing it’s location (in the circle). The second is a closer look at this “green” ball of ice making its way towards the sun!
