Off topic, but this is pretty cool.   I'm a bit of a amateur astronomer (and I mean really amateur) but I read about Comet 17P which had a super outburst on October 24th where it brightened 12-13 magnitudes.  Anyways it was pretty easy to find and while I didn't drag my telescope out, it was quite visible and spectacular in binoculars.  Once you know what you're looking for it's easy to find with the naked eye.  It's currently in the constellation Perseus.  Check out the links and you'll find pics and better description of where to look.
