Yes. I have seen a few.

I was to young and not yet interested in astronomy in 1986 when Comet Halley last made it's journey to the inner solar system.

In the mid-late 1990s, I had the pleasure of seeing to bright naked eye comets, Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp.

Just a few years ago, the surprising out-gassing of Comet Holmes made for a third naked eye comet visible in my back yard.

Add to that, maybe a dozen or so other comets I have seen with binoculars or my telescope, and I can say I've seen a fair amount. Comet observing is not my biggest passion with observational astronomy, but I don't pass up a chance when a really good one comes along.

Periodic comets are predictable, but no major ones are expected to come by anytime soon. On the plus side, comets behave very unpredictably as far as their brilliance is concerned. A new one could be discovered tomorrow, that will outshine any other comet ever recorded... then again, you might have to wait a few decades. Even occasionall ...more
