C/2006 P1 ... I need a clear sky

Comet McNaught was is a 'day' event reported on Sunday onwards.... and see the incredicle actual light curve here . This is my first time I bring along my 10 x50s, camera tripod and a small digicamera S3 Canon plus the orientation chart a AM and PM plot of comet-sun configuration to work today. But the sky was cloudy and transparency sucks...

How often do you have a chance to view a celestrial object during the the day ? Discounting the obvious sun and moon of course. A comet !!! during noon!!! Even for Venus I only tackled that once from Mt Victoria, Wellington, NZ in deep blue sky 1979 naked eye.

Whatever you do please be careful, dont look into the Sun nearby.
