See Comet Lulin

Watch the skies for Comet Lulin, a first-time visitor to the solar system that in dark skies will be visible to the naked eye February 24 and will continue until March 1.

A glowing-tailed, first-time visitor to our solar system made a celestial debut visible to the naked eye, starting around 1:30 a.m. on Tues., Feb. 24. If you missed the display — because of clouds or sleep — you can log on to the Coca-Cola Space Science Center at Columbus State University, in Georgia to view a webcast of the encounter at your convenience: http://www.ccssc.org/observatory/image_gallery-CometLulin.html
