Green Goblin in Perseus

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.

  1. I thought you might have blogged about this. I was out the other night on November 5th observing it with and without binoculars. I was amazed at how well it could be seen without any aide at all.
