Is or should Comet Lovejoy be naked eye visible at the moment?

I believe that comet Lovejoy has just barely reached naked eye visibility. The morning that I photographed the comet, I was just able to make it out using averted vision. See: http://www.spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=13&month=11&year=2013

Using the 4 comet image posted by sandgirl above, and drawing a set of converging lines from the dipper cup, I located what appeared to be a tiny greenish speck in the sky at 6am. Perhaps lovejoy is more than just visible now
