    Comet Holmes

    Hi All:

    I saw the thread about Saturn and thought I would pass along some info about Comet Holmes. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere you can see this tonight!!!. Its a naked eye comet in the constellation Perseus. For more info and a night sky map go to www.skypub.com its the website for Sky and Telescope magazine.

    FWIW,

    Anna

    Dang! Was it last nite only?? And I was in and out of the house half the nite bringing in my orchids. I looked up at the stars many times but only a glance.

    NICE photo Steve!

    Comet Holmes

    Hi All:

    The comet will be in the sky for awhile. The only problem is the moon is rising tonight so it may be to bright to see it. I was out observing it last night and I couldnt believe how big it was and that I could even see it with the city lights.
