    God I love astronomy.
    That's heaps good, I won't be able to see it but I definitely think anyone who could see it should see it.

    Do you mean Comet McNaught? That was clearly visible from Australia.

    The worst thing about where I live is the light pollution. It's not even worth me buying a telescope.
