I missed comet mcnaught

Last night, while up at the school, one of my professors and I decided to try to see the comet I have mentioned earlier. So we go and find the security guard so we can get on the roof of the science building on campus (gotta have a clear, unobstructed view of the horizon) and when we get up there, what do we see? Clouds! Only on the western horizon! So I was really bummed out about that since this is supposed to be the brightest comet in the last 30 years or so. I saw Hale-Bopp back in '97 but I missed this one all together. I guess I will just have to enjoy it in pictures. By the way, if you are in the southern hemisphere, once the comet gets to the other side of the Sun, you may be able to see it, even in daylight!
I was hoping to take a picture or two of the comet, but so far I haven't even seen it. People used to think comets were messengers of doom, maybe this one just has nothing to say to me.
