    Erm I hate to say this but ..

    Eastern US Timezone (coastal) is -5 hrs GMT and daylight savings is in effect so it's -4hrs.

    Singapore is +8 hrs GMT

    Thus -4 +8 = +12 hrs time difference.

    Therefore 10.55pm April 6 equals 10.55am April 7, not 6.55am as you stated.

    u think u can take picture of comet after u see it?

    by the time u switch on your DC, it will be gone arleady

    btw, i have seen comet also on the bridge to sentosa....was looking towards the sky and suddenly saw a bright and thick line across the sky....not only me, my friend also saw it too

    i have seen many shooting star in taiwan, there are long but very thin....sometimes u can see 3-4 shooting stars in different direction at the same time....we tried to count shooting star with my buddy...count until 60+ and we fall asleep already....there were lots of stars too....it is like looking at those galaxy photo...the sky are filled with nothing but stars...u cannot find an dark & empty area in the sky

    but this comet i saw is really thick....
