For anyone wanting to take issue to my condemning the headline by saying "Well, the comet IS moving that fast..." is begging the simple issue. The
earth is rotating at a speed of X . It is rotating the sun at y speed. Our solar system is moving through the galaxy at Z speed. The galaxy is
moving through the universe at... Get the drift? All of these are "zooming" velocities if you are closely examining the velocities of things. But
that correct perspective of several factors are ignored in a relative experience, and that is what we common viewers here on earth with our naked
eyes, binocs and even large telescopes have at our disposal, a relative experience that does not approaching an appearance of "zooming."
