46P / Wirtanen
« on: December 11, 2018, 09:54:34 AM »
I saw the comet last night.  I loaded it into Stellarium, and then saw it was near Menkar, and right by 96 Cetus. I drove out of town maybe 2 miles, on county 25 towards keller. It was easy to spot with 7x binoculars.  I didn't see any tail, but I wasn't very far out of town so the light pollution was plentiful. Maybe on the next clear night, I'll have more time to drive to Keller, and get a better look at it.
