While the Southern Hemisphere has had some great views of Comet Pan-STARRS for several weeks, it’s now everyone else’s turn to have a shot.

Starting tonight and lasting through March 20th, Pan-STARRS will start to make it’s way up the western horizon – with tomorrow evening (March 10th) marking its brightest point.

According to EarthSky.org (which has a great guide for viewing the comet), your best bet at spotting it is just after sunset, just as the sky starts to darken. From the site:

“To see it, you will need an unobstructed, cloudless view of the west after sunset. It is best to pick a dark spot, away from streetlights. Look in the sunset direction, as soon as the sky darkens.”

If you happen to miss Pan-STARRS (most of the us in the northeast are lucky to get one or two cloudless nights in March), don’t worry – the big comet of 2013, Comet ISON, is still on track to give us a historic visit next November.
