Lovejoy Diary Day 10

Clear skies, although somewhat moisture laden. Comet C/2011 W3 Lovejoy seen with difficulty against the Milky Way. Needed averted vision to be sure. Still moderatley visible in binoculars, visually tail probably only around 6 degrees long now.

Comments:
can i know how if i can get a glimpse of this comet 31 dec 4am? I am in Melbourne. Which direction should I look? I am just using my naked eyes. Thanks.
 
Sorry for the rather late reply, as I was on the road, posting using a mobile phone. As it was, form Melbourne it would have been difficult to see, but you would have looked south under the Southern Cross.
