Three Comets in One Lifetime


Halley's, Hale-Bopp, and now, Holmes....which totally rocks the northeastern sky!

I guess you have to have an "H" surname to score some comet fame.

Do Smiths and Joneses never become astronomers?

That three comet thing, apocalypse no? By the time I was done being WOW'd by the Space Station, the sliver of a Moon, way too many low orbit communication satellites, the clarity of the constellations, looking up way too long for my age, it's the red dust spot? Gonna put some good optics on it tonight, 50x10 Davey Crockett grind, old but no better target acquisition assist have I ever put to my eyes. xo ;~)

Mark should we be concerned that you have a ready link to a site called "small bodies"?

:p

Incidently, comet works very well on sinks n' bathtubs too.
Takes awhile to rinse off though.
What?

Even midgets have it where it counts...

Okay, you started it, Joan! LOL
