Many congratulations to Masayuki Iwamoto. The comet is currently low in the morning sky on the border of Hydra and Libra slowly moving north and crossing into Virgo in mid-January. As Jonathan says the orbit is currently very uncertain. As soon as we get a bit more astrometry I’ll post some charts here.

As a challenge it may be currently observable from the UK. From Chelmsford it is currrently around 10 degrees elevation in the SSE at the start of nautical twilight (around 0640 UT). This is 10 deg lower and a bit to the right of where Venus is.
