At Mag +5.5 it will need a pretty good sky to see by eye especially as it is quite low and visible just as the sky starts brightening at dawn. Still if you have a good eastern horizon it may well be worth getting your camera out.

I am re-enforcing my cellar and stocking it up, mostly booze.

Where will the bits go?

I think your cellar is safe Mr CM, Ison is no more, probably..............

ahh well next time fingers crossed!  looks as though it may have been composed mainly of water and other volatile substances which just vapourised at perihelion, it may............just may give us a bunch of meteors in the next day or so.

It's a Romulan plot, cloaking device.
Suggest we mount a last stand from CM's cellar, better drink the booze first, as bit part players we are bound 'to cop it '.

Fantastic little videos chaps,  amazing pictures.

Completely covered sky here.
