Yes Alan, you should be able to.
The problem is that it is going to be visible very soon after sun set when there is twilight so sky is not enough dark. An will set soon. A pair of binocular will be helpful. Start from tonight but should be best about 12th March (Just to the left of crescent moon). I am personally concerned today with all these high clouds (That are unusual for norm of Los Angeles). Wish you clear skies.

It's a fairly modest affair, but does feature a nice bright nucleus.

Still fails to show up in LA.
Did my best last evening. Many others at beach too. No one could see it.
Dens marine layer at the horizon is to be blammoed so far.
Hopefully a better luck tonight on wards when moon shows up as easy land mark.

Being Seattle, the weather is apparently not going to cooperate for us. Hopefully it will clear up for one of the other viewing opportunities. Oh well, at least it was sunny on Saturday.

Does anyone know any good spots around the Chicago suburbs to view this? I did happen to see it Sunday when I took a ride out past Joliet. I however was unable to photograph it because the clouds covered it up before I could set up my camera.

Very nice ones showing up now.

Tony love you last one.

Az that is wonderful. You are officially the first of LA. What a nice location too. I didn't leave home due to dens marine layer near beach. Envy you location so let me add, You missed the Hollywood sign! Just kidding. Excellent job.

- Go on top of the tallest building you can,
- Face the West side, set up your tripod and camera,
- wait about 30 to 40 minutes after sun set.
- If you extend your arm with your hand fist's lower border touching the horizon (Asuming there not many tall obsticles at horizon) PanStarr would be right at the level of top of your fist.
- If at visible tonight, it should be again to the left of moon.
- If you look on or after 16 of March it will be just to the left of moon,
- Every night moving more to the right.
- It will set soon so don't think of any excuse for being late. You won't see it.
- When you got the picture, upload it right here!
- Have fun.

I didn't stay out late enough for it to get really dark. Just too darn windy and cold. This is from the shore of Lake Lanier, just north of my home in Buford, GA:

Wonderful image.
Wish I can get rid of these clouds. Again Marine layer is building up at LA's coast.
Must move to higher land.
