Well, I could have seen comet Holmes

If it weren't for the houses in the way. Despite the full Moon, I could see stars down to magnitude 3 easily by eye, and binoculars showed a lot more. But where the comet was was covered by houses. I just live too far south. I must also make a note to myself to print out my spotters map before getting up at 2:30 am, instead of lurching from computer to backyard like a zombie.

(note added later, a fellow Adelaidean up in the hills saw it, blast. Tommorow night I go down to the beach)
