Be sure to catch the PANSTARRS (sounds like a reality cooking show, yeah?) comet this week. Particularly starting on Tuesday night right around sunset, the comet will appear low on the western horizon near the crescent moon, and will be visible with the naked eye, though binocs are recommended.
I'll be at Mom and Dad's and we're planning to mosey somewhere that we can take a gander at the spectacle. This is not a comet that will come back around in our lifetime, so get it while it's hawt.
