Something to look forward to and looks like there will be plenty of time to plan

@BEEBEE According to the article, there will be another one before that...
Remarkably Ison might not be the only spectacular comet visible next year. Another comet, called 2014 L4 (PanSTARRS), was discovered last year and in March and April it could also be a magnificent object in the evening sky. 2013 could be the year of the great comets.

Has anyone in AZ seen this one yet? It's been too cloudy here. :(

Looked last night and got nothing. My wife got home from the hospital tonight so I was too busy getting stuff set up to go out into the desert and look. There'd probably be a pretty good picture from Horseshoe Bend of this comet, I'd suspect.

Here's a view taken Tuesday from the foothills of Las Sendas in east Mesa. This was about 20 minutes after sunset.
