Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 in Lepus

Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 is currently in the constellation Lepus, and the celestial rabbit's bunny ears made excellent pointer stars to help locate the comet last night! The comet was visible with binoculars and with my DSLR even through thin clouds. Tonight is supposed to be crystal clear, so I might make another attempt to photograph it since I don't really have any NYE plans.
