Re: (IAAC) Visible Comet



I know exactly what you mean Kim i have been waiting for the clouds to clear all week so that i could get a look at the comet it would have been my first. Looking at the weather for the week to come well it's rain and cloud :-(

> Nice one Mark, if the flaming sky ever clears over here I will have a look at it, I was unaware of it's existence until your mail. (The way this is put it could almost be refering to the sky itself, wait! it does!!)
