Terry Lovejoy's comets seem to always bring a bit of excitement. Comet C/2017 E4 Lovejoy has been brightening rapidly, and now appears to be in outburst with reports coming in of magnitudes around 7.5.
Unfortunately, for both the northern and southern scopes, the comet likes at 23 degrees above the horizon at astronomical twilight, making imaging difficult. From SSO the comet rapidly heads towards the horizon, but from the northern scopes the comet tracks the horizon, so there are several days to attempt to catch it and follow the outbursts progress.
Sadly, comet Lovejoy doesn't pass anything really interesting before it becomes too low for the copes. Hopefully it will survive perihelion and put on more of a show.
