Where is Comet Panstarrs ?

Comet Panstarrs has now passed closest approach to the sun and is beginning its journey back out of the solar system. Its difficult to describe which orbit it is within as the Comet is approaching the solar system from 'underneeth'its plane (or above depending on which way you look at it). To better understand this, use the 3D diagram linked below.
