Caithness Night Sky
Comet Mc Naught

10 January 06
This comet is clearly visible to the naked eye very low in the sky near the Sun just before sunrise (SE) or at sunset (SW). This photo of it taken as the sky was brightening on the morning of 8th January 2006.
Unfortunately it will soon (by the end of this week) be too close to the Sun to see it. You'll need clear skies similar to those on recent mornings to see it - good luck!
