Another spectacular comet prediction?  I'll believe it when I see it.

Magnitude is now estimated at between 0.5 and 1.5 in the dawn sky; on the fringe of naked eye visibility and impressive in binoculars. Michael Jager, the best comet photographer in the world imo, posted this superb image from this morning -
