Ah, Comet Hartley… THERE you are!

…or at least, there you were, last night. Yes, after several tries I finally tracked down Comet Hartley last night – exactly where it was supposed and predicted to be, i.e. close to the Double Cluster in Perseus – but boy, it was faint, So faint, waaay fainter than naked eye brightness. It didn’t look at all impressive, just a small, blurry, fuzzy, smeary ball of… mistiness… but it was elongated, not like a star at all, so I was delighted to find it!

Going to head out again soon for another look, as the sky is quit clear here in Kendal tonight. And I know exactly where to look…
