Comet Machholz -- Part 3

From this dark island Comet Machholz is an easy, indeed conspicuous, naked eye object. As commenter Dave says, the vee of Taurus's face points the way -- for the moment. While I was observing the comet through my spotting scope, two satellites passed through my field of view.

My Sunday Musing this week is about the winter sky, although certainly not the sky of this tropical place. Nostalgia? Sorta. But not enough to take me back to snow and ice.
