What’s up with the comet this week?
It’s still up there, visible with binoculars pretty much due west, most visible between 8 and 8:30pm. There is a small tail visible, and while it’s slowly fading, it’s staying up a little longer each night so the sky is darker. It’s not quite bright enough to be seen with the naked eye, but take a 2 or 3 second digital camera photo and it’ll pick it up. Visit http://www.spaceweather.com for more detailed viewing directions.
I’ve noticed the redwing blackbirds and grackles are back and my yaupon holly has budded out.
