Comet Pojmanski

There's a barely-visible comet near Venus right now. Here's a sky map. Comet Pojmanski was just discovered in January. Use a telescope or binoculars to see it, and the sooner you look, the better. It will only get dimmer.

We're just about a month away from the total solar eclipse.


  1. just about the *THE* coolest thing i will read for a week...can't wait for the blog following this event!!!! (jealous 6th grade girl sqealing coming out of s'mee's mouth)

  2. What a great opportunity for you! I still have the commemorative stamp Mexico issued from years ago when the total eclipse event took place there. My husband was in Cabo at the time.
