    Aspied comet wirtanen again tonight,24th December,it was just a tad north of capella.this comet has been well placed by major objects such as m45 and now capella making it so easy to find . I'm going to put it at about the 5th magnitude now. I had to catch it about an hour after sunset as we have a near full moon moving up which would wash it out.certainly not the best comet I've seen, the hale bopp and Holmes where better,but one of the easier ones to find.
