Comet P45 where to see

For North America.


Though it will be close, it is NOT a very big comet. Plus, being a PERIODIC that goes around the Sun once every 5.25 years, and has been doing so for a long time, it has expended some/much of its frozen ices that vaporize to create the tail. So it will NOT be putting on a dazzling show. If anything it will JUST (and I mean JUST) be naked eye visible. Best to try and see it with a telescope or a pair of binoculars.
