GREEN COMET APPROACHES EARTH: This week, a small green comet named
"45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova" (45P for short) is approaching
Earth for one of the closest comet flybys of the Space Age. On the nights
around Feb. 11th, Comet 45P will be an easy target for binoculars and small
telescopes, revealing itself in eyepieces as an emerald colored fuzzball.
Visit today's edition of Spaceweather.com for sky maps and to find out what
makes this little comet so green.
