I saw Comet Lovejoy again this morning using 10x50 and 15x70 binoculars under partially cloudy, mediocre skies. The comet was now north of the fourth-magnitude star Mu Leonis and was a bit difficult to see.
Also observed were the following deep-sky objects and asterisms: M35, M36, M37, M38, M41, M42 and the Sword of Orion, M44, M45, M47, M48, M50, M67, NGC 2244, NGC 2264, Collinder 65, Collinder 69, Collinder 70, the Hyades, and the Leaping Minnow in Auriga.
Sic itur ad astra!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
