Comet Tuttle

Comet Tuttle by Pete Lawrence
On New Year's day, Comet Tuttle will be closest to the Earth, a mere 25 million miles away, and also at its brightest. The comet will just be visible to the unaided eye, so you will need to be observing from a very dark site.
A gallery of images, and sky maps of when and where to look, can be found at SpaceWeather.com.
