This is probably one of the last chances to see the comet PANSTARRS from the Montevideo, Uruguay , as the comet goes now to the north. Barely visible at naked eye, but a very clear and beautiful sigth with binoculars ( 7x50). Photo at "Punta de las Carretas" , on the shore of the Rio de la Plata . Hope you in the north will have clear skys!
