Comet Kohoutek around 1973 was probably the best Comet I seen although with a very faint tail. Although other comets I have seen to date were either fuzzy stars or a big fail in terms of brightness.

How to add comet ISON to Stellarium

Thanks, although I'm feeling somewhat stupid trying to use Stellarium.

I have it installed but it seems to be 'stuck' with Paris as my location and I'm not there.

I may have to uninstall it; I can't even figure out how to use the menu's in it. S977

C/2012 S1 ( ISON )

Now it is 11.1 mag (Sept. 16, Tsutomu Seki). It is expected to be a great comet in 2013 autumn when the comet approaches to the sun down to only 0.01 A.U. It keeps visible with naked eyes from November to January, and can be extremely bright as Venus or more at the highlight. But recently, it is fainter than originally expected by 2 mag. It may be 3 mag at best actually when it is observable in the morning sky. The condition is excellent in the Northern Hemisphere. It keeps observable almost all through the period of brightening, at the highlight, and of fading. The condition is not good in the Southern Hemisphere. It is not observable at all the latter part of the highlight, and it keeps low all through the period.

Whether you see it or not, is nonsense, it's out there, others are too. Large and small rocks, many of them. Wake up.
