Two Posts in One Day!

It's certainly not like winning the lottery, but when you can get two posts in one day from me... It's like having a comet viewable to the naked eye. It doesn't happen very often. Well, guess what? That's exactly why I'm writing. The comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) is so bright in the evening sky that it can be seen shortly after sunset.

Here's a map of the evening sky and where you'll need to look to see this spectacular comet.

Want to know what you're in for, here are some images taken from It shows a very mature comet with a long tail in the evening sky.
