Green Comet

See the article: Wow! Striking Green Comet Suddenly Visible in Evening Sky
What had been a modest comet seen only with binoculars or telescopes flared up this week to become visible to the naked eye [images].

Comet Swan, as it is called, is in the western sky after sunset from the Northern Hemisphere. It remains faint, likely not easy to find under bright city lights but pretty simple to spot from the countryside.
P.S. And last night we missed a total eclipse of the moon, due to heavy overcast weather.
