Comet is a rare sight for stargazers
We've had dense fog every night and early morning, so I've yet to spot Comet Holmes myself -- but you don't need any kind of magnification -- your peepers will do. There is a wonderful photo of Comet Holmes taken in the Anza-Borrego Desert, but the photo is in the print edition only. If you go to latimes.com and click on "Print Edition" in the left collumn, you'll get a PDF of todays front page containing that photo. If I locate it elsewhere online, I'll post it here, too.
