Coworker just sent me a flyer from a Wisconsin based astronomy club about a comet coming up in about 10 days called Pan Starrs, that will be visible from March 10th-16th (dates based on a Wisconsin perspective).
I looked it up in my Orion Starry Nights software (from a central NC perspective) and this is what it will look like at 6:40 pm in the western sky. Look at it's juxtaposition with the moon, pretty cool.
Wow, look at the apparent magnitude! Thing is going to be almost as bright as Saturn!!
