I've not seen with my own eyes, but the reports are coming in
to the comet observational networks.

The comets are getting brighter. Hopefully, in addition to the
professional and amateur astronomers on Earth, Rosetta will
be able to observe them in space too.

(All Rosetta instruments have now been 'commissioned', meaning they
have been tested in space, and are active. See:
