Last Saturday night (7/18/20)

I'd previously pent a couple of nights at home looking for it,
but finally decided to drive ~20 minutes west to get some
distance on our light pollution for darker skies.


I found that the shot I like the best was before it really
got completely dark, with my shorter telephoto:

Are you shooting N-E and dawn, or west and sunset?

I ask, because here it is only visible just before dawn.
In a few days we expect to see it at 22:30 hours (20:30
hours solar time).


I'm shooting West & Sunset.

Its easier hours on the body g but even given "even"
choice, I'd probably prefer to setup before dark and then
do teardown in the dark, rather than the reverse.

In north-america it's now visible in the early evening under the Big
Dipper. Magnitude 6 and under a perfect dark sky human eyes can see up
to 8, so it's very faith and it will get dimmer


Thanks. That figures.


I went out last night (7/21) and got a few more shots between the
clouds. Overall, it was harder to spot, even with binoculars
(binos are fairly small .. probably 5 x 20's?)

Pity that the google Sky Map doesn't have it. Stellarium does, but needs
a computer. The laptop is more cumbersome than the phone to carry.


I have a smartphone App "Night Sky" which has it. Its iOS, but
there might be an Android version too.

On my phone (an iPhone) i use an app called Sky Guide
(https://apps.apple.com/us/app/sky-guide/id576588894), work very well

you just point it at the sky and tell you what your looking at. Even
have a "augmented reality" mode when with the use of the camera it will
superimpose the feed from the camera with details, great when you want
to spot a comet of a specific target.
