Did you try Lemmon comet ?

A friend of mine told me that Lemmon comet is brighter than Pannstarrs. Did you try to sketch it ? From my red zone backyard, I'm not sure to see it because my friend is actually located in a blue zone. The comet is in Andromeda not far from M31.

Yesterday I did another sketch of PanStarrs, very faint but still nice and different from weeks to weeks.

BUT: Lemmon has a short fanlike tail, quite normal. PanSTARRS has (apparently) two tails: a broad not fanlike to p.a.=225°, I saw 4' of it. An a very narrow tail to p.a.=20°, I saw 8'.
Quite interesting: To have a comet which has an antitail longer as the main tail.
You may have a look at the sketches which illustrate this well.
