Comets Spotted

The Bonaire weather is starting to get back to it's sunny self, and we could see the stars pretty well tonight. So we went out into the back yard with our trusty finder charts and binoculars and saw comets Neat and Linear again.

Between moon glare and cloudy weather, we hadn't seen them for quite a while. The comets have both gotten a lot fainter than they were a month ago. We could see them with the binoculars but not with the naked eye.

Here is a site that has good finder charts for the comets.
