Wow!! I also couldn't find the comet. I was looking too close to the moon. I wonder where it will be tomorrow night?

Awesome shot by the way!!

Thanks! I was initially looking too close and hadn't framed it right. I'm working on an animated GIF. I ended up re-framing several times and had to manually adjust exposures as I went.
