Thanks for posting this one Gordan. I'll probably miss this one as it will
be too low when it becomes brighter...

I see it now has a short tail. Unfortunately it will stay very low and
in my trees. I lost a lot of them recently but none that block my view
from the observatory or this comet. You'll have to keep us posted on
what it is doing.

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".
