Comet Garradd....

Hmm-not quite a viewing window for the Comet yet-I'm observing from my living room Window Early this Morning and Ursa Major (The Plow) has only just started to move off the Azimuth-that's where the Comet is and it has to get lower, far too cold to Observe outside and absolutely no pleasure in it-much better to Observe from the warmth and Comfort of my House-especially when the temperature outside is down to 3.2 Degrees Centigrade-where's the snow....
Nice clear sky though

Anyway had a look and see some messier Objects this Morning-M35 in the Constellation of Gemini, M36, M37 and M38 (Which ever order) in the Constellation of Auriga and Praesepe can be seen with the naked eye and its an old wives tail that when its visible to the naked eye-bad weather is on its way-we'll see.
I hope to look after 02.30 when hopefully the Constellation will have moved down enough to see the Comet-but with Ursa Major being a Circumpolar Constellation I fear its not going to be easy.
And don't forget that Spring starts Tomorrow....
Good Clear Skies
