A comet that has generated tremendous excitement the past week became visible in broad daylight Saturday in an event that will likely be recalled as the skywatching opportunity of a lifetime for many people.

SPACE.com's Skywatching Columnist Joe Rao called it "one of the rarest of all cometary spectacles."

Comet McNaught is now the brightest comet in 40 years, according to the International Comet Quarterly at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
