Comet Lemmon
Visible in May 2013

Comet Lemmon C/2012 F6 was observable in the east shortly before dawn through binoculars and telescopes from dark sky sites, far from the light pollution encountered in urban and sub-urban locations.

The comet was expected to fade from magnitude 6.7 to about magnitude 8.0 as the month progressed.
