March 11, 2013 - Comet Pan-Starrs Now Visible


For some time now, keen-eyed Australians have had the ridgy-didge thrill of peeping on a ghostly-white intruder to our skies: Comet Pan-STARRS, a fuming iceball that at times is so brilliant you can see it with the naked eye.

What has become a sensation down under is finally making its way to the planet's deprived northern audiences. Beginning this week, Pan-STARRS will creep into the heavens above North America, glowing low on the horizon like an antisocial star that refuses to fit in with the pack. People living along the latitude running from Salt Lake City to Pittsburgh to New York could be able to spot it right after dark, if they can minimize the astronomy-hating features of the modern urban landscape like tall buildings and blinding street lights.

Thanks, coolcat, I didn't think we'd see it until the end of summer... our summer, not yours.

Pointless. There is a thick obscuring haze reaching about 15 degrees up from the ^&#@$^ Pacific Ocean every night. Every day I look at the evening sky. Nice and clear. Then I drive 12 blocks over to coast where I can stand out on a point over the ocean waves and look forlornly at the.. haze right exactly where Pan-STAAS is supposed to be.

Pacific Ocean -><- Me.

Maybe by the end of the month it will be high enough to see over the haze.
