    Eureka, i think that i have seen it on 3/11/13 at 7:20 pm in my front yard
    with my 10×50 binoculars. it appears small with a very starlike nucleus and
    a coma that is faint. I hope to repeat this over next few nights.

      I looked at the same time but could not see it. There was a layer of clouds that was covering it here in Visalia.
