The bright Christmas comet of 2014 continues to shine beautifully high in the night sky. Now moving north and located directly south of the constellation of Orion (about 20 degrees south of Orion) the comet is sporting a beautiful tail. The comet is visible to the naked eye under dark skies, but this is not the case from my outer suburban location where it shows nicely visually in a telescope but not naked eye.

Comet C/2014 Q2 was discovered by Australian amateur astronomer and comet hunter Terry Lovejoy.
