Comet Lovejoy on Thursday Morning
Posted by DaveMitsky on Thursday, November 14, 2013 2:03 PM
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.
