comet in the night sky
o.k. the challenge is to spot it from heavily light-polluted downtown washington, d.c.
that very bright 'star' you see in the early evening night sky is actually venus.
i'll have a go this evening using binoculars.
saturn should be easy, but i'm not too hopeful about spotting the comet (at least it will be clear - er, and very cold up on my rooftop)
