At http://phys.org/print369482077.html … we are told Comet C/2014 S2 PanSTARRS will be visible in binoculars in late December, as it crosses the circumpolar northern skies. A Christmas comet – but will it provide a show and spring to life.
Meanwhile, Comet Catalina can still be seen with binoculars and this will remain so into January. We shall also hae a full moon of 25th December. If it is dry and the clouds are absent for a few hours you might get to see the comet – and the moon.
