lighting up like a giant green neon sign in the southern sky ... starting in late march it should be naked eye visible in the northern hemisphere ... and with binoculars you should be able to see this exceptionally bright comet ... glowing green ...
by then and around the end of april it may develop a bright sunward spike ... this is just the beginning as we anticipate the much larger comet C/2012/S1 later in the year ... the "official" explanation is that the comet in this photo is "reflecting sunlight" ... what a laugh ... this is lighting up like a light bulb because that is exactly what is happening ... luminescence in comets has been denied by "standard science" because like everything else ... they cannot explain it with the hallowed (but comically incorrect) dirty snow ball comet model ... my Plasma Discharge Comet Model clearly explains this and many other commonly observed high energy phenomenon of comets such as x-rays to the sunward side of the nucleus ... read about this and much more in my books now in e-Book format .

Comet Lemmon is currently putting on a great display in the southern sky right above New Zealand! You won’t wander outside and see a bright naked-eye comet with a long tail but rather a nice fuzz ball patch with binoculars or a telescope. Lemmon has surprised the comet community by shining about four magnitudes brighter than expected – e.g. today (25/1/13) it is magnitude 7.5 when most planetarium programmes say it will be mag 11.5!
C/2012 F6 (Lemmon) was discovered on the 23rd March 2012 by A.R. Gibbs as part of the Mount Lemmon Survey (Tucson, Arizona). It was then at magnitude 20.7. As with all comets, predetermining the magnitude is a bit like picking the Lotto numbers. However, revered comet observer and comet webpage master Seiichi Yoshida from Japan produced the following model based on current magnitude estimates:
