Comet 2007/W1 Boattini brightens

Comet Boattini is brightening at a rate faster than predicted. It is definitely observable in binoculars now. I picked it up in suburban Largs North under less than ideal conditions with averted vision and 10x50 binoculars. Orbital elements are here, a nice shot from the southern hemisphere is here. I'll have to work on a binocular spotters chart for you all.
