Look out! Comet ahead!

I remember almost a year ago, reading about an exciting event to come this very month. A newly discovered comet was going to come very close to our orbit, making for anything from a “spectacular” to a “too close for comfort” pass to Earth. Well, as time has passed, astronomers have found they’ve miscalculated a bit, and it’s not quite as close as they thought. But, it is still something to behold in the night skies…and it’s peak for viewing is this week into next week…

Here are a couple articles on it, so rather than repeat details on it, please do feel free to read on.
