    We saw the comet from NW Washington about 8 pm, in 7x50 binoculars. Is tail was about 1/4 degree long, to the 11 o'clock position. About 8 degrees above the horizon. Before 8 pm the western horizon was too bright to see the comet.

    Thanks for the info! It would really help if you would put the sunset (and sunrise) times (or a link to them) somewhere on the WJLA home page, so we can know what time to arrange to have a clear view of the west and try to see it in the next few days - and other future uses!
