Comet makes a pass in mid-March
Comet PanSTARRS will be making a (modest) showing mid-March, just after sunset, low on the western horizon. It's worth making a special effort to spotting it. It may be hard to see with the naked eye, as there will be the glow of dusk to mask it. That's why looking for it on the Equator, at sea, gives you the best viewing potential. Binoculars will help tremendously though!
