Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy in the Beehive (7-8 November 2013)
Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy is easily visible in binoculars in the constellation of Cancer. On the 7th and 8th of November it is very close to the beautiful Beehive cluster.
You will need to get up before Astronomical twilight, an hour and a half before local sunrise, to see it before twilight makes them too hard to see, best around 2 hours before sunrise.
