Comet Ikeya-Zhang

How come comets are never discovered by people named "Smith" or "Jones"? Anyway, be on the watch for this newly-discovered interloper, low in the sky after sunset these next few days.

This picture is from the "Space" link above, and shows the comet over Tenerife, in the Canary Islands.

Here is a link to a nice finder chart for the comet.
