Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy is closest to Earth Tonight (7 January 2015)

Evening sky on Wednesday January 7 looking north  as seen from Adelaide at 22:00 (10:00 pm) ACDST in South Australia. Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy is to the left of  Rigel.  Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).

Tonight (7 January 2015), comet C/2014 Q2  Lovejoy is closest to Earth. It will not be at it's brightest until; the 11th, but with the waning Moon rsing later, it is a good time to observe this comet.

Of course, I am clouded out.
