A nice display of comet Lovejoy at dawn of "Sinterklaas", when all kids in the low countries get toys & chocolats. Lucky for me the holyman brought me this beautiful comet. It was not visible to the naked eye (foggy layers), but with a 10x50 binoculars it showed a tiny tail and was very clearly visible.
