G'evening Lily,

Yes, tonight, spectacular events are predicted, but that - of course - depends on various factors like cloud cover and viewing locations (north being somewhat better). Posted are two links describing these events.
Enjoy a stargazer's delight!

I didn't get to see the comet, but the cloud pattern that was back lit by the full moon was spectacular. (tu)
