Comet Holmes is definitely worth checking out. It is visible with the naked
eye from my driveway and looks good through binoculars or small scope, esp.
before the moon comes up. I think it's growing a little tail but that may
be wishful thinking. Everyone should take a look and let me know what you
think! It's easy to find, just below Cassiopia and it's not moving much
night to night, meaning it's headed our way. Walter
