    There are several that are visible now until December.  Viewing conditions vary and depend on hemispheres and latitude.  103P/Hartley 2, 10P/Tempel 2, and C/2010 V1 are three comets currently visible from Earth.  There are many others in orbit in the vicinity of Earth, but some are too dim to easily find.  Other comets have become unobservable for a period of time and will resurface later.
