Re: New list is up

Comet Hyakutake is closing in on the tail of the big dipper and will be
about 1 'fist' below it (in the direction of contents of said dipper
spilling towards Polaris) on March 24th. It gets very close to Polaris on
March 26th. I hear it is about as bright as any of the Big Dipper stars by

Just to include some "physics", has anyone viewed the comet that is now
visible? If so, what power binoculars is required?
