So far, the comet flirting with the moon hasn’t shown its face to the naked eyed. But that’s expected to change tonight, as both move far enough from the twilight. In the Charleston area at 8 p.m., the comet will be one-third as high as the moon, and a little bit to its right. Friday night, it will be a little higher. It should be viewable without binoculars into next week, when the waxing moon gets too bright for it. Enjoy.
