Clearly-Visible Comet To Pass Near Earth This Week

Comet Discovered Last Summer


POSTED: 10:58 am EST January 4, 2005

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Just weeks after one of the biggest meteor showers in years, a new object is visible in the night sky over the northern hemisphere.

According to Space.com <javascript:ol('http://www.space.com/spacewatch/041231_comet_update.html');>, Comet Machholz will pass just over 32 million miles from Earth on the night of Jan. 5-6, and experts say it's clearly visible in the southern sky, even to the naked eye.

Adam Block/NOAO/AURA/NSF An image of Comet Machholz taken by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory in mid-December.





Discovered in late August by Donald Machholz in California, the Machholz comet has been brightening as it continues its approach to Earth.

The comet is climbing in the night sky, just slightly east of due south, through the west side of the Taurus constellation. On Jan. 7, the comet will be visible near the Pleiades star cluster.

Experts said that the comet is highly visible at this point because it's traveling outside the Earth's orbit and is illuminated by the sun.

Despite being visible without aid, experts said using binoculars or telescopes to spot the comet will provide the best view.

After zipping by Earth, experts said the comet could make a return trip -- in about 119,000 years.

Which, is, of course, nothing short of utter randomness.
