    Hello Dave,

    my last observations of the comet with binoculars have shown a core (or brightening towards the center) and a fainter halo.

    Thanks for reporting

    Suggest you download Stellarium Stellarium

    You can set your location and it will show you the sky as you see it there. That can help you a great deal with finding objects within your view in Brazil, as well as helping you learn the stars and constellations.

    I should have added to my first response that in Brazil you definitely have the ability to see the two brightest globular clusters there are, Omega Centaurii and 47 Tucanae. Omega Centauri is the brightest, and you should easily find it in the constellation of Centaurus in Spring through Summer. 47 Tuc is in the constellation Tucana and it should be visible to you right now during the early evening. I have seen Omega Centauri with enough elevation to find it a stunning object. I have never been far enough south to see 47 Tuc. Check out Stellarium to find their locations. Happy viewing.
