Brightest Comet in 30 Years.
An exciting development has occurred in our night sky. Comet McNaught will be visible in the Western sky around sundown tonight.
Comet McNaught is plunging toward the sun, and the heat is causing it to brighten dramatically. A few days ago, it was barely visible in evening twilight, but now it pops into view while the sky is still glowing blue. Only Venus is brighter.
So if you have clear skies tonight, be on the look out for Comet McNaught!
