Comet "McNaught"

In honor of the recent discovery and viewability of the McNaught Comet, StarryNight sent me a notice that you can download the recent version for only $24.95 minus $5 if you use this code "sncomt" at checkout.

If you want to see the comet, here is what they have to say about that:
Subject: Starry Night Viewing Alert - Catch Comet McNaught Now!

Newly discovered Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) is brightening, and this evening may be the best opportunity to catch a glimpse of it.

Some observers are claiming it's one of the brightest comets in recent years.

The keys for a successful observation are clear skies, an unobstructed view of the horizon to the west-southwest, binoculars or telescopes and, of course, knowing exactly when and where to look before Comet McNaught disappears below the horizon.

Use Starry Night to print out star charts with the position of the Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) for your exact latitude and longitude and to determine the best time for catching the comet. In Starry Night, search for "McNaught (C/2006 P1)."
