Comet 103P Hartley

For those who haven't managed to catch a glimpse of Comet Hartley yet, here is a great link to S&T magazine showing the comet in all its glory.

Hopefully we'll get some good views over the weekend, although the moon is still very prominent.

The comet is now apparently naked eye without visual aid and has a very large diffuse coma and some tail.
