2011L4 has reached the northern hemisphere. We had cloudy and cold weather here for some days with lots of snow. But yesterday around sunset the sky cleared. I was prepared and stood with a pair of 7x50 binoculars and my 8 cm APO at a location with free view down to the western horizon.
50 min after sun set I could glimpse the comet, at first with the binocular. I could follow it until it stood 4° above the horizon. Detecting the comet with the unaided eye was difficult.
