P1 or PX?
Comet McNaught C/2006P1  January 9, 2007, Sighting in Manassas, VA
Hi Kent, this is absolutely amazing!!!  I just saw it in broad daylight at 10:30 am EST.  
It must be exceedingly bright, and it is huge.  
The nucleus appears to be about the size of the Sun disk.
To see it, use a roof line to block out the Sun.  
It is about a hand span above the Sun (in the am), and a little to the left.

Granted the comet will not be seen outside of twilight, but some of the estimates of what the comet's maximum brightness will be on January 12 and 13 indicate it might be a fairly easy object to see in evening twilight. Right now, it seems the maximum magnitude might reach -1.5 to -8.7. If the latter is true, the comet would be visible in broad daylight! --G A R Y W. K R O N K

Egads! Swan!

RINGSIDE SEAT: Soon, the comet will be too close to the Sun to see--unless you're SOHO. From Jan. 11th to 15th, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory will monitor the comet-Sun encounter using its onboard coronagraph.
