Comet Garradd passed the globular star cluster, M71, while we were at Starfest. The two objects were easily viewed in the same field and made a spectacular sight. The comet will be passing very close to the Coathanger asterism (also known as Brocchi's cluster) from September 1 to September 3. It will be interesting to watch the comet as it moves against the background stars of this well known asterism.
