Terry Lovejoy's sixth discovery may be brightening much faster than original predictions would have it. Bob King is stating Lovejoy is magnitude 7.0 to 7.5 and "a snap to see" in a 50mm binocular. Kronk states is may get to 6.5 by 15 April.

Lovejoy stays in Pegasus until 13 April, when it moves into Andromeda.
