Comet Lulin...

is now a naked eye object in the constellation Libra and its closest approach to Earth (0.41 AU - less than half the distance of Earth to the Sun) will occur on 24 February. You'll have to be an early riser to see this object, preferably from an observation point far from city lights.

Information sheet (description and sky maps.)

I'm keeping track of this comet, and the weather, and will strive to take an image or two in the weeks ahead. If I am successful I will post it here.
