A Comet Explodes

I will keep you updated.....

Space Weather News for Oct. 22, 2013

A COMET EXPLODES: Amateur astronomers are reporting a 100-fold
outburst of brightness from Comet C/2012 X1 (LINEAR). Images reveal a
spherical shell of gas that reminds observers of Comet 17P/Holmes,
which exploded in 2007. So far the comet is too dim for naked-eye
viewing, but at magnitude +8.5 it is bright enough for imaging by
backyard telescopes. Visit for photos and
more information.
