Nope!
It's been cloudy here all last week and even now!

I saw it 1/2 an hour ago. Faint from where I was (city) in 16x50mm binos. Could see a good part of the coma, but not as large as in the photos.

No. It was easy in binoculars last week and about half the size of the
full moon in 11x80s but now with the extra moonlight it is harder to see
the coma around the nucleus. It has been wet and windy since then.

Is there anything interesting going on close in near the nucleus?
