Watching Boattini in the Morning
I had a quick look at Jupiter (a readily visible disk in binoculars, with Ganymede below it), then when hunting comet Boattini.
Boattini was readily visible in binoculars near omicron Eriandius (just up from Rigel). Couldn't see it with the unaided eye, but my eastern horizon is pretty grungy, due to the city being that way. No atil visible, but it did look pretty amongst the stars in the binoculars.
Tomorrow morning Boattini is near omicron1 Eri, so will be easily visible. I hope the weather holds.
