Comet NEAT C/2001 Q4 is naked-eye visible for the next few days from darkish locations - not downtown Houston, though. It's very nice in binoculars.
http://www.spaceweather.com/ has finder charts.

I just looked at the comet. NEAT is a rather pretty object even from suburban skies on a poor-quality day with a TV tower's lights interfering. I hope I can get to a dark-sky site before it fades out.
