Editor's update: Did you see the comet on February 24? If so, let us know by adding a Comment to this story (see below). If you didn't see the comet, you could watch the archived webcast by the The Coca-Cola Space Science Center in Columbus, Ga., which transmitted the view through its 16-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.
