Lovejoy antitail?

Tonight using my 20x110 binos I feel certain I could see an antitail on Lovejoy. I spent the last month using my 16 Meade reflector which showed beautiful coma. I never really looked for the tail. Just a day or so ago I started using the big binos and could see a tail even from my suburban sky, but I never noticed the anititail until tonite. I wish I had been using the binos all along. Can someone confirm the antitail? Maybe it is just a squashed coma or my eyes are playing tricks on me.
