Comet C/2007 N3 (Lulin) is closing in..

I love astronomy, and have a big 250mm Dobson telescope. However, I'm very picky and usually won't go out unless something special is about to happen. I'm one of those people who rarely watch something else than comets. Well, February is a good comet month (actually the past month has been too), with comet C/2007 N3 (Lulin) getting brighter and more beautiful each day.. eh night.

Check out the NASA site above for more info including a link to the discoverer's blog and ephemeris for the comet.
