This comet was doscovered by a Japanese amateur (albeit a retired professional astronomer) at the start of the year and is now rising in our evening skies.
I got my first glimpse of it earlier in the week, using the new 11" Celestron Rowe-Ackermann astrograph iTelescope in New Mexico:
But last night I managed it from Bolton too:
It's only around 11th magnitude and already begining to fade, but will remain well-placed for a few weeks as it tracks through Camelopardalis towards Auriga: http://www.aerith.net/comet/catalog/2020A2/chart2.gif
