My astronomy club assists the astronomy club of a local middle school, and for their meeting today, I collected my comet photos, taken over the past ten years. This topic is in anticipation for a moderately bright comet expected to grace our sky in little over a week.
Comet PANSTARS has been visible in the southern hemisphere and has brightened so that by the time it slips into the northern hemisphere sky on March 9, it should be discernable in binoculars. Look low to the west just after sunset. Then when the cresent moon appears on the 11th and 12th, look near the moon to find the comet.
My photo of McNaught from January 2008 is a brighter version of what to expect for this sunset comet:
