From For optimal viewing, you want an unobstructed view, away from any city lights. Monte Sano, Green Mountain and the higher elevations of Northeast Alabama and southern middle Tennessee will be the best places to view the Moon and Comet Pan-STARRS, within 30 minutes after sunset this evening.

Comet Pan-STARRS will continue to be visible over the coming days, but will gradually become more dim and less visible.  By month’s end, it will be hard to see the comet, even with the aid of a small telescope.
