Just spotted that Froggy, looks like an easy spot later on in the month but ,cloud willing, I'll nip out on my 'night shifts ' over the next couple of weeks and see what I can see!!

Hope to get a look too - if this rain ever stops :drinks:

However, here's one I took earlier, Jan 10th 2007 to be precise :lol: Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1)

This went on to become the most spectacular fantailed comet after it disapeared from northern skies and reapeared for the southern hemisphere. If the latest McNaught is only half as good it will be brilliant!
