If this has been discussed in this forum before, please redirect me to where........I could not find it.
Yesterday, at 4:30 am from Southern California, I saw the comet above the north eastern horizon.
Last night at about 9:15 or something, I saw it on the northwest horizon.
My brain cannot figure out how I was able to do this. What is the motion of the comet/trick of perspective/ or whatever that makes it possible to see the comet in the morning on one side of the sun and then later that same day in the evening, apparently on the other side of the sun? It is preceding the sun on rising, but following the sun on setting.
Is there a three-dimensional(ish) illustration of this somewhere?
