Two Comets Spotted

There are still a lot of clouds floating about, but in between them, the sky is very clear tonight. I saw both comets Neat and Linear tonight, right were the charts say they should be.

I couldn't see any signs of a tail on either one of them, but I'm glad to have spotted them at all.

I haven't had a chance to see much of anything for quite a while, so this is a big improvement, even with the moon hanging around.
I'm pretty worried that there will be clouds around on the morning of June 8, when Venus goes across the face of the Sun. But I suppose a lot could change between now and then weatherwise.
