As the report stated "Sunday, December 1 all night – Find Vesta using Alpha and Lambda Ceti". I have been tracking and viewing 4 Vesta since 03-Nov-19 when it was in Taurus (moving retrograde). I use 10x50 binoculars and my telescope at 31x with a Telrad. Much fun watching the heliocentric solar system in motion :) 4 Vesta distance is slowly increasing from Earth, thus the asteroid is gradually becoming fainter, now near 6.8 apparent magnitude or so.
