    I've been getting up early the past few mornings to try and catch a glimpse of it but poor weather has been making it difficult.

    Brings back memories of Halle-bopp a good few years ago! Boy, that was great.

    Did anyone see it in the Northern Hemisphere? I went out one evening, but even the best location here had trees in the horizon. Plus, there were some thin clouds around the sunset as well.

    EDIT: incredible pics

    Yep I saw it about 10 days ago, very easy to see and bright, LOTS of pics from the northern hemisphere.. check out the first 6/7 pages of that link. But people in the southern hemisphere are getting the best view.

    The comets head is not visible from the north, but the tail is so long its actually visible in the north from very dark sky sites.

    I wish i could have seen this one. I've been itching to see another since Hale-Bopp. Is there any chance it will be visible in the northern hemisphere again?
