Last chance to see the PAN-STARR Comet is Thursday night

CLEVELAND - Mother Nature is finally cooperating. Clear skies Thursday evening should provide us with a good view of Comet PAN-STARR. After tonight, it will only be visible by telescope.

So, here's how you see it. The best view will be 15 minutes after sunset, roughly 7:45 p.m. Draw a line in your mind from where the sun is setting up to the crescent moon. The comet will be about halfway between the two, just to the right of your imaginary line.

Make sure you find an elevated location for viewing, or a location free of trees and buildings. The comet will be just above the horizon! Snap some pictures and post them on Instagram using the hashtag #Insta5news so we can show it on NewsChannel5!

Happy viewing!
