You may have heard of the Pan-Starrs comet. It recently swung by the sun and is now on its outbound journey away from us.
It became an object in our night sky about a week ago, but it's been basically cloudy every evening since then. Tonight our evening should be mainly clear, so this may be an opportunity to see it.
It's a borderlline naked eye object, so you may need a set of binoculars to see it. It will be in the western sky (just north of due west) about an hour after sundown at the end of twilight between the constellations Pegasus and Pisces.
Good luck...grab a jacket and enjoy!
