Naked eye comets are so rare, but we will have PanSTARRS in March and Ison in December, both visible fron N hemisphere.
Ison may even be visible in daylight.
My prediction, cloudy skies over Britain for both events.

Hah! I've never even pented, much less repented. In fact, I have no idea how one goes about penting. I suppose it's commonly done in a penthouse, but I've never been in a penthouse either. I did once meet a woman whose pictures had been in Penthouse, but that's a different strory.

confined - not free to move about

repent means re-confine yourself?

I think "repent" was originally a typo. It was supposed to be "repant", meaning to put one's pants back on.

Cloudy skies won't be a problem. Comets are up there for weeks at a time. It's inconceivable that it will be cloudy every single night that the comets are around. Hale-Bopp was a beauty for two months as I recall, even though we managed a lot of cloudy nights during that time.

I hope you are right Steve, but the last few months give cause for concern.
My family further down in Cornwall have evolved gills and webbed feet.

I recall waking my young daughter and going out to see Hale-Bopp mostly so she could get an idea of what millions of kilometers 'looked' like. At 2:00 AM she was suitably impressed and fell asleep on my shoulder.

WE had a beautiful view of Hale-Bobb from out in farm country. Even got some photos of it.

Thanks for posting about the two possible sightings in 2013, Keith. We have put them on our calendar for the year.

Anybody had any luck viewing Pan-STARRS?

We tried tonight, but no luck. Tuesday and Wednesday are supposed to be the best days for viewing here in California, but it's supposed to be visible all week on the western horizon, for about an hour after sunset every day.

Thanks for the tip Keith. Unfortunately, by the look of the weather and the forecast, it appears we won't be viewing it any time in the near future from Köln!

I think I will be envious of your warm tropical evenings and clear Californian skies Joe.
Do you observe from a sunlounger by the pool?
Do the palms obstruct you view?

up of course

If it can only be seen in the northern hemi, then look first at the NW twilight sky and scan to the right. Once located use binoculars.

I remember Hale Bopp having one red tail and one blue forming a 33 degree angle.

The orbit of the solar system has moved from "below" the galactic plane and is now in alignment with the disk of the Milky Way. Eventually the solar system orbit will go 'above' the GALACTIC plane in its own frequency sine wave orbit around the galactic center.

Seems to me there is more stuff in this region of alignment of the galactic plane so we should expect a lot more stuff to be thrown out of its prior position from within and without our solar system and create more hits and near misses than in the last 600 thousand years.

In other words the Earth is now in a region of awful traffic after having been drivng around in the boonies for half a million years.

My sky did not clear until late.

My neighbour has an overflow running.
The wind has whipped it across my house where it has frozen, turning my place into a glacier.
Wish I was in California with the movie stars.

G Force, it is difficult.
Right in the sunset.
Tonight just above the moon but that will be too slender to see.
Tomorrow just below it.

I was going to ask: "What's jolting all of these comets out of the Oort cloud? But Donuel has probably answered my question. Nevertheless, would the same force displace meteors from the Asteroid Belt?

Last night and the previous night we had a very clear twilight sky.
First for a month.
I could not see it or find it with binos so I have missed this one.
