The moon might be a little bright at the moment to see Comet Lovejoy, but in another week or so if you look up at night you'll be able to clearly see a very rare event. 

Ken from Geraldton Astronomy Group tells us that Comet Lovejoy is quite visible with the naked eye, and he's taken some shots already. 

But with a pair of binoculars or a telescope you're really in for a treat, especially if you can get slightly out of town where it is darker. 

It's currently in Orion and heading to Taurus (if that helps at all.)

Below is a time lapse video of the comet, which appears green through a powerful enough lens.
