Comet C/2019 U6 (Lemmon) was very easy to find tonight among the dim stars of Hydra. It's just a few degrees west of orange giant Alphard (Alpha Hydrae). Not quite naked eye visibility, but an easy target for binoculars. The comet should become easier to see over the next couple of weeks as it makes it's way from Hydra into Leo.
