Tonight’s Comet McNaught Finder Charts

The comet is still an easier (easier being a relative term) object to see in the morning sky. It also helps to live further north. In fact, it is impossible to see the comet south of the equator.

The comet is still in northern Auriga a few degrees to the east of the 0th magnitude star Capella. For observers requiring a better, fainter star chart, try this one.
