2 out of 3 Comets seen

I saw Comet Neat on Friday evening. It is climbing rapidly to the north east and should be easier to see each evening. It was just barely visible to the naked eye, and looked like a round fuzzy ball in the binoculars. It looked bigger than Comet Linear in the binoculars.

It is still very cloudy and hazy at sunrise and sunset each day here, so I haven't seen Comet Linear again and haven't had a chance to look for Comet Bradfield. I've read that Bradfield is fading quickly, so I may not get to see it at all.
