Brightest comet in 30 years

Space Weather News for Jan. 10, 2007

Comet McNaught has continued to brighten as it approaches the sun and it is now

the brightest comet in 30 years. For observers in the northern Hemisphere,

tonight is probably the best time to see it: Go outside this evening and face

the sunset. A clear view of the western horizon is essential, because the comet

hangs very low. As the twilight fades to black, it should become visible to the

n@ked eye. Observers say it's a fantastic sight through binoculars.

In the days ahead, Comet McNaught will pass the sun and emerge in good position

for southern hemisphere viewing later this month. Meanwhile, solar heating will

continue to puff up the comet, causing it to brighten even more. It could

become one of the brightest comets in centuries, visible even in daylit skies.
