I have been observing Lovejoy comet for two consecutive days. Yesterday, the waning moon turned the whole scene amazing. The dust and ionizing tails were indeed visible with unaided eye. I could appreciate the scene more than one hour today. As the comet travels to darker skies, the days ahead seems to be promising to have a better sighting.
