Comet C/2012 K5 (Linear): finding chart (1 to 9 Jan. 2013)
As comet C/2012 K5 is still a nice view with a pair of binoculars and because it is now crossing very nice star fields across the winter constellations, we provide here an updated version of a finder chart.
The chart above shows its path across the sky up from Jan. 1 to Jan. 9, 2013. Each position is plotted at 0:00 UT.
To plot the chart, we used TheSkySix from Software Bisque.
