2013 is set to be the year of the comets with 2011 L4 (Pan-STARRS) having already made a decent appearance and set to remain a fading circumpolar object during the spring months into summer, and the very exciting prospect of 2012 S1 (ISON) later in the year. Muscling in on the show is comet 2012 F6 (Lemmon), originally thought likely to be a modest, run-of-the-mill comet on show first in the Southern Hemisphere, it has delighted comet enthusiasts there by becoming far more impressive and it's now set to wow north of the equator.


 



 


 Looks like a few early morning or very late night sessions in May.

Should be nice. I tried to spot panstarrs last night. Got my scope set up. Let it cool a bit came out to check if everything was ok, perfect clear sky. Went back in for a drink, 5 mins later total cloud cover :facepalm: back inside :(
