Today’s Astronomical Events – February 7th, 2015

Time is running out for observers in the southern hemisphere to see Comet Lovejoy, as it’s now slipping toward the north-western horizon. For those north of the equator, it can still be easily found as a magnitude 5 object close to the bright showcase double star Almach in Andromeda. Catch it in the early evening skies, before the Moon rises. It should be easily seen with binoculars or a telescope.
