    Last night, I learned I can’t quite see the comet from home. 🙁

    Any suggestions for an accessible vantage point in French Creek State Park or nearby?

    Hey Jan.I did a little searching for you. I found that Natural Lands’ Green Hills Preserve is fairly close to French creek and according to pics there at spots that get good view of horizon. You could check this out.

    Jan – how far are you willing to travel?  I had a great view of it last night from a park with open ball fields near Downingtown.  French Creek State Park may be too wooded?  or maybe from the top of the parking lot south of the swimming pool?  You’ll need a clear view to the northwest.  It was only about 10 degrees above the horizon when I saw it last night.  I used 10×50 and 12×60 binoculars .

    Thanks for thinking of me guys! I need to stay close to home right now, so I’m checking out some promising locations near me. I’m just glad so many people are getting out to see it; it’s been a long time since we had once his nice. 💖
