This is another faint comet discovered late last year by the PanSTARRS search programme. It's only around 11th magnitude, but will pass within 0.5AU of the Earth next month.

I tried to image it from Bolton on Wednesday night, but the sky wasn't clear enough. However I had better luck from New Mexico on Friday morning:
