I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Later next month, Comet Panstarrs will likely be visible to the naked eye at night in the Northern hemisphere. Its closest approach to Earth will put it roughly 100million miles away, a bit further than the distance between Earth and our star.


Even later this year we may get another celestial treat. In late November, Comet Ison will approach and may even be bright enough to see during the day all around the world, provided it holds together and doesn't crumble as it nears the Sun.

The last time a bright comet approached that I remember was back in the late 90s. I never saw it because the whole time it was in viewing range, there was heavy cloud cover. Hopefully, we'll get to see these.

I hope I can see them too. New York is pretty bright because of the street lamps but its worth a shot in the end.

I bloody love comets. I'll keep a look out too. Who wants to join me on the bonnet of my car? We'll stare up at the night sky with a doobie.

What happens when you wish upon a comet? Is that bad luck or good luck, I'm not sure. It's probably something like a monkey's paw. Like your wish will come true, but it comes with unwanted circumstances. "Oh, I wish for a million dollars!," and you get a million dollar bill with Obama's picture on it that you cannot cash anywhere.

That would be really cool to see a comet hang around during the day like that. I remember going up to one of the local ranges with my uncle and watching junk enter our atmosphere for hours and hours with his telescope.

Garbage was never so beautiful.

The murrikans have hoods, so i guess it's you and me who'll chill with the weed and make meandering posts on GR later that night discussing the merits of snickers vs mars bars.

Just a reminder of where to look if you want to see the comet. Telescope or binoculars are best, but it can also be seen unaided.
