That is soo awesome. Anyone know what time it could be visible in the carribean and where exactly I should look? I tried googling but haven't found anything yet.

I really would love to see this if it's visible

Look to the east before dawn.

You'll catch it before dawn...

This site should be handy:

nightskyonline.info...

Last report is that the tail has faded somewhat.

I caught a glimpse of it this morning, it was quite faint against the light pollution that I was surrounded in.

Has there been any further explanation of why this comet has survived it's close encounter with the sun? I believe there were so many know it alls believing there was no chance it would survive. Any explanations of what this thing is made of? Where is it heading to next? Will it make a visit back into our system? These are the interesting questions!!!

So ats does not post on recent posts unless you have thousands of flags or what? Nice to see some real questions not being scientifically answered because a post is not posted on recent posts when it was a last post on a thread...kind of fishy!!!

Now this is getting funny. I went to recent posts on this website and it now says chadwikus made the most recent post 2 minutes ago. When 15 minutes before it was chadwikus 10 minutes ago. What is going on here? I am beginning to think some members have a stake. Prove me wrong please!!

Wow...no scientist has been able to explain why the survival of a weak comet? Just guesses is all anyone really has. I definitely wish I could examine this thing from the north. It looks huge...just curious again if any of the so called realists on here can explain the 98% chance they said it wouldn't survive. I believe I heard someone.say that we might have to re write our thinking of comets and their travels through space.

Comet's have survived close encounters with the sun before, just not that often.

THIS site has been following the progress of the comet since it was first discovered and offers plenty of information.

There were at least 6 spacecraft observing the comet and the information and data gathered is still being analyzed, a little patience is required methinks...

Except rocket and shuttle launches!

I would have loved to have had the opportunity to see a shuttle launch with my own eyes.

Thanks for the reply and info chadwikus. Wasn't this comet only 500 meters at most? What comet had come as close as lovejoy and survived at that size? Sorry to ask but thought you might know off hand. You know more than I do about these rocks.

The only one to come to mind is The Great Comet of 1843

It came from the same (Kreutz) comet group as well...
