DENVER (CBS4) – If you’re patient, willing to get up early and have a telescope or a good pair of binoculars, there’s a chance you might catch a glimpse of a comet this month.

Astronomers say sightings of the Comet Catalina are possible to the left of Venus about an hour before sunrise over the next several mornings.

The best chance for seeing this comet is predicted to be on the morning of Dec. 7, but sightings could continue into the month of December.

Comet Catalina was discovered in 2013 by the Catalina Sky Survey.
