Looked for Comet ISON, but dawn twilight and low mist prevented my seeing it. I could see Spica and Porrima, but the comet in between them eluded me, though once or twice I suspected a faint streak of light with averted imagination. Earlier (around 05:30) the setting 14-day-old Moon lit up the horizon haze and blocked my view. The Moon will make it difficult to see the comet for the next few days.

Temperature = –2° C
