Comet Lovejoy C/2007 E2 Locator Chart (enclosed)

Just a quick heads-up for this comet. Here is a chart taken from skytonight.com:



The comet has a current magnitude of just under +7.0, making it observable even in binoculars if the seeing is right. It is very diffuse, so it may look like a smaller Machholz from 2004/05.
