Comet Holmes!

    When beggars die there are no comets seen;
    The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.
      William Shakespeare

Comet Holmes unexpectedly brightened last week, but I've only just heard about it. Thanks to Heavens Above, I was able to locate it. To the naked eye, it appears as a slightly fuzzy star in the constellation Perseus.
