Comet C/2014 S2 Panstarrs 
in the Evening sky
November 8, 2015

 This is currently the brightest comet in the entire sky, beaming softly at 10th magnitude and just visible in my 8x50 finder. It sports a fine dust tail, tawny in color here after a nice teal colored coma which has a bit of a corkscrew shape.
