it has started out bursting dust and gases forming two tails and they are clearly visible through good quality binoculars.
Here is an image done by Damian Peach somewhere in Northern hemisphere.
If you are living in the Dry Zone or anywhere with clear sky you may be able to see it before sunrise in Eastern sky, closer to horizon. You need a binocular and trained eye to locate it. If the outburst continues, the comet should become easily visible to the naked eye by 25th or even before.
For Colombo people , sorry , town lighting and dust in air will make it impossible for you. If it become more brighter than magnitude +4 Colombians may get a chance to see it before 28th.
I am visiting my selected place in Nagollagama , next week and if I photographed it I will paste here.
The comet will reach closest point to Sun on 28th this month. Some people suspect it may fall into the Sun as the path is too closer. If not , it should reappear in the morning sky just before sunrise in December and in western sky after sunset in 2014 January.
