Thanks very much for the chart Mark, interesting read from sky & tel, seems the northern hem is the best place to see it, it will be visible before dawn near the ecliptic after perihelion and could experience a forward scattering event like comet comet McNaught in 2007 which could produce a long and bright tail which sounds very exciting. You never know, this one could become a borderline great comet. Time will tell  Smiley
