Comet Catalina 8 Sep 2015.

Last night about 19:30 from my backyard in Albion (some 4 km North of Brisbane CBD). No view of Catalina through the finderscope, but could easily follow a star hop from Sigma Lupus to Catalina's location as presented by Stellarium.

Through the eyepiece, too much light pollution to observe any structure other than a fuzzy ball of coma and maybe faint starlike nucleus without the averted imagination running wild.
