Grab it by the Tail.

Dear Comet-Chasers,

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:

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.
