Grab it by the Tail.
Many of you will already know about comet Lovejoy, and you will have already stepped out into the winter's night with your binoculars and wandered around searching the vast firmament. I heard about it from my DJ, a few nights ago. It's a nice, respectable sized comet- you'll want to see it.
This is a nice place to begin to look, from your warm sofa: www.cometchasing.skyhound.com
When you come back in, and you are thinking "Wow! So much going on out there! What else can I look for?" Check this site, for spotting the lost and lonely astronauts sitting in their tin can. I know it will ease their isolation to know we are watching for them.
