From the top of Rossberg, Swabian Jura, Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks was just visible as a fuzzy patch in binoculars. But it was a nice constellation with the lunar sickle and Jupiter close by on April 10th, 2024. The comet can be seen below the moon and together with Jupiter as an almost equilateral triangle.
