Comet Brewington 154P is not as bright or newsworthy as fellow comets ISON and Lovejoy but I thought it was never-the-less worth at least a visit. It is currently a relatively easy to find magnitude 10.9 object south west of the Great Square in Pegasus in the early evening sky. Brewington is a periodic comet that comes every 20.93 years. It will make its closest approach to the Sun this December 12. It travels nearly to the orbit of Saturn at aphelion 10.46 year from now.
