38P/Stephan-Oterma reaches its brightest

11/12/2018 @ 8:00 pm – 12/12/2018 @ 8:00 am Europe/London Timezone

The comet can be seen from dusk, all night until dawn the next morning. It will be high in the sky making it an easy target. Although it is predicted to reach it’s brightest on the 11th it can still be seen throughout December. You will need a telescope or a decent pair of binoculars to view it though.

A great finder chart located HERE
