Hi,
Just in case no one here notice it, a comet, Comet 17P/Holmes, had suddenly become very bright... so bright that it is now visible to naked eye if you know where is it even in light polluted Singapore sky!!! :eek: I just saw it with my binocular and scope as the north east sky clear up for brief moment... it was bright and quite easy to see it even with a small binocular.

See the below page for more detail or search "Comet 17P/Holmes" on internet:

Hope that the sky will clear up longer... hopefully on Friday night and Saturday night and the comet remain bright, so that I can try to photograph it.

Have a nice day.
