Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

* "Visible" only applies if you own a personal observatory with a fifty inch telescope and live at least 2,500 miles from the nearest light bulb.

Gozer the Gozerian, good evening.  As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

Wow, what a crappy article... Sure, it has a lot of information about what comets are and how they work, but after going off about how cool it is to have 4 comets to look for, they don't tell you at all how to view them, where to look for them, when they appear, where you can and can't see them... Really, nothing.

I'm thinking that Subby works for a movie studio and is part of the prerelease push for Ghostbusters 3. Ghostbusters has been running on Cable constantly.   Ghostbusters 2 has as well.   There have been a ton of Ghostbuster references on TV in the last 2-3 weeks.

All the information I have read indicates they are duds, only seen with a Telescope or Binoculars in excellent light conditions. More info here:

Cool, thanks for the link. Of course, just because they are "duds" so far, it doesn't mean they won't improve.

Either way, thanks again for the link

Comet ISON has brightened significantly in the last few days and is now a naked-eye object before dawn from dark-sky locations. For the next few nights, you can use the bright star Spica as a reference point.

To find Spica, extend the curve of the Big Dipper's handle past Arcturus (bright, orange-ish star).

Yeah, my thought is that if you aren't considering apparent brightness, then there are tens of thousands of comets in our night skies all the time!

You, my friend, are awesome... I appreciate this. My daughter is excited to see these comet things I keep telling her about(She campaigned to get me a telescope last year when she was 3), she is really into the astronomy kick when I can show her stuff. While at the time I may not be able to actually show her anything, I now know where to keep my eye on.

Yeah, for the purposes of this conversation, it's these 4 comets, of course... :-)

Well if you're going to go there, if the debris around other stars is anything like ours, I'd say quintillions would be an excessively conservative estimate.

That's what everyone says, but then they ask for proof. Turns out that "I have your nose" thing doesn't qualify as supernaturally powerful. I almost didn't survive that one. Hell, for all I know I didn't. So confused...
