COMET LULIN




UPDATE: Last week, observers saw little of Comet Lulin because it was lost in the glare of the passing Moon. The glare is subsiding now and Lulin is back--better than ever. Observers say it is visible to the naked-eye (magnitude +5.6) as a faint gassy patch in the constellation Virgo before dawn. Backyard telescopes reveal a full-fledged comet, vivid green, that moves as you watch it. On Feb 17th, Joe Gafford of Deer Trail, Colorado, caught a solar wind gust tearing away part of Comet Lulin's tail:

The view will improve in the nights ahead. Comet Lulin is approaching Earth for a 38-million-mile close encounter on Feb. 24th. At that time, the comet could shine two or three times brighter than it does now, and photographers will record it using cameras alone--no telescope required.

that is the full story.

here are the photo graphs tooken already: www.spaceweather.com...

by feb 24th it will be the brightest.


To sum it up. A comet is visible in the night sky from now till feb 24th.

and on feb 24th it will be the brightest it can get.

Just saying if you love space things then you could try and look for this in the night sky.

it's visible to the naked eye.

Also if people start reporting a ufo you will know why and what it really is.

Wow! Thanks for sharing that!

Do you know if this comet is supposed to be as bright as Hale-Bopp was? I remember seeing that comet back when I was in like sixth grade--simply spectacular! I'm definitely going to be getting up early now!

Wonderful! Apparently this is the only time we will ever see it because it is believed it will gain enough momentum after going around the sun to escape our solar system. Bye Bye Lulin! Nice to have met ya! LOL \


Edit for spelling
