Early risers this month may catch a glimpse of a new comet in the dawn sky.

Comet McNaught will be visible just before dawn through backyard telescopes and perhaps binoculars into late June. Look low in the northeast sky shortly before dawn, in the constellation Perseus.

The green comet will be closer to the horizon each morning. It could brighten enough to be visible to the naked eye by month's end, appearing about as bright as the stars of the Big Dipper, but astronomers are unsure because this is the comet's first visit to the inner solar system
