Wow. Was it ever bright. I thought it might have been the Intnl Space Station. Huge oblong glowing object in the sky. I can only imagine how bright it looked from the middle of the Pacific or New Mexico. It was/is the brightest thing I have ever seen in the night sky aside from the moon.
"Comet Holmes is seen among the stars of the constellation Perseus in the North-Eastern sky just after midnight on Monday, Nov. 5, 2007. The comet's gas cloud continues to expand over the last 10 days after a sudden eruption and is still visible with the unaided eye." (AP Photo/Dr. Scott M. Lieberman)
