Please find attached a drawing I made of comet Lovejoy last night. Although there was passing patchy cloud, transparency was very good. The distinctive greenish hue is still present, but it seemed to me that the bright nucleus was somewhat less well defined. Similarly I found the tail quite hard to see, and I was only able to pick up the start of it near the coma.
