Comet 17P/Holmes visible to the naked eye

In the past week, a relatively obscure comet has undergone a tremendous outburst which is visible from backyards and streets to the naked eye. The comet is 17P/Homes and is currrently in the constellation Perseus. You can simply search for information on the comet through your favorite search engine, but I wanted to encourage you to go outside tonight and treat yourself to a spectacular comet view with the unaided eye or even better with your binoculars. I am currrently imaging the comet and will post images in the next few days. Enjoy the specatcular view and stay in touch.

Please check out this website for more information on the comet.
