Finding Lulin...

Has anyone seen her? Yesterday is was overcast, so I tried to find her today with my Bushnell binoculars, but I can't tell one light apart from another. She's supposed to be close enough to be seen with the naked eye, but every light looks the same to me whether I am looking with my Bushnells or without. Just look at this photo taken from Virginia yesterday! This was taken with a camera! I WANT TO SEE HER (and yes, I am having a tantrum - you should see it in person... lots of stomping is involved.)

Update: 10:30 PM
I SAW HER, I SAW HER, I SAW HER, I SAW HER!! She's ENE of Saturn tonight and SUPER hard to see with the naked eye, but once you look at Saturn through the binoculars - BAM! THERE SHE IS! I am so happy!!!

Super cool! Can't see anything here in the city. And no binoculars

And with the cloudy and rainy weather the next couple of days, it is going to be even more difficult to spot.
