Comet Lemmon is a relatively faint comet with a magnitude of +4.7 on March 24, 2013. It remains to be seen if it will be easy to find with the naked-eye; thus, for the moment, I have taken down the morning view graphic for April and May. For comparison, the Andromeda Galaxy has an apparent magnitude of +3.4 which makes the galaxy brighter than the comet. You really have to know where to look in the sky to find this galaxy. With that in mind, Comet Lemmon will be harder to find!
