Made my third observation of C/2006 P1 Mc Naught this evening (Jan12th) at 16.20 UT when the sun was only a few degrees below the horizon. The sky was VERY bright with Venus visible to the naked eye (comet was not) however the trans was very poor with much moisture in the air causing the background sky to adopt a white colour rather than blue. Having said that I found Mc Naught easily with 10X50mm binoculars approx 16 degrees west of Venus. The coma was a small golden - orange disk and highly condensed with a short white stubby tail curving to the NW for 10'. I had it in view for 5 min's before the clouds obscured the comet. IMAGE
