This one is a fairy tale for sure. Comet 17/P Holmes which passed perihelion in early May has suddenly brightened up dramatically. Reports of Observation have been flowing in from places worldwide and this is one comet that has really managed to rummage out enthusiasm-galore out of even a non-fanatic Comet enthusiast.
Some observation reports have placed, predicted the Comet at 1st Magnitude. The comet is currently in Perseus and has a star like appearance to the naked eye and with most telescopes unless at high power, when the coma becomes more aparrent. Care to resort to Cartes Du Ciel to make a finder chart for yourself.
