NASA astronomer Tony Phillips says
Comet McNaught is the brightest comet visible from Earth in 30 ears.
It is six times brighter than Hale-Bopp in 1997,
and 100 times brighter than Halley's Comet when
it appeared in 1986...
"It will remain a spectacular comet for weeks, perhaps months,
in the Southern Hemisphere," Phillips said.
"It could emerge as the brightest comet in recorded history."
