Keep your eyes towards the moon. 

Comet Pan-STARRS is just peeking into view in the western sky shortly after sunset. It will be close to the Moon on the evenings of March 12 and 13, making it easier to pick out. The comet is about 100 million miles from Earth, but closer to the Sun, which warms the big iceball, vaporizing some of its material and creating a long, glowing tail. “
