Lulin is naked eye

I haven't observed the comet for a week or so and tonight it was easily naked eye if you live in a dark location. The finder chart from S&T made it very easy to just form a line between Spica, Saturn and Regulus. Once you have that line look for a little green fuzz between Spica and Saturn. My 7X50 Pentax binoculars made it a very nice object to view. For those that are having difficulty locating Lulin, the night of the 24th should be easy because it will appear very close to Saturn.
