Post subject:  Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd in late November

I managed to catch it with my 15x70 binoculars at around 7pm this evening, just to the SE of Hercules.
It's quite low in the sky now, so I could only find one spot in the garden where I could see it - and then it was partly masked by the exhaust from one of the neighbours' heating systems! :roll:
But it's still quite bright enough to show up clearly in the binos, even within these constraints.
