Brief gap in clouds last night (25/07/2020) at around 23:00 (BST). At present we can just catch it (sideways) through our west-facing bedroom window. Not naked eye from here (Surrey) at this time, although we saw it clearly naked eye at about 02:30 in a crisply clear but brightening NNE sky on July 11. But last night it was still good in binoculars (8×50) and very easy to locate beneath the Plough. Faint and fairly diffuse dust tail, better with averted vision, but any ion tail not seen.
