comet dimming

Current predictions now are showing that comet C/2011 L4 Pan-STARRS will reach magnitude 3. Not -1.

Spotted this in the Sky and Telescope article... Verified it with Seiichi Yoshida's site, of course.

That's 2 magnitude values below when I've spotted Mercury... an equivalent distance from the Sun...

Not looking good for northern hemispherians.
