Comet McNaught - Jan 23

I only caught our friend McNaught as it approached the smog/light/atmosphere layer last night. Not only is it beginning to fade in terms of its own inherent light (counteracted to some degree by it being visible for longer after sunset), but the moon is definitelywaxing - and adding its obscuration to the whole affair. Apparently after tonight, it will start to fade to our eye. Can't complain so far!
