Australian amateur astronomer Terry Lovejoy's 5th comet discovery, this comet has just become naked-eye visible from a dark site (but not yet visible from the UK) and is brightening as it moves further north. The best time to see it will be from about 7 January for 2 weeks or so, as it moves up past Orion and through Taurus. More information here -
