New picture: Comet 17/P Holmes, click image.
Around October 23rd 2007, from out of nowhere came a new ‘star’ in the constellation of Perseus. This star is a comet that brightened a millionfold for reasons still unknown. To have a new, unexpected naked eye treat is wonderful. The casual observer might not notice this but training binoculars on the star-like object reveals a bright fuzz ball.
