APOD Update: Comet Nishimura

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Earth & Space Sciences, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Solar System

Astronomy Picture of the Week (APOD) includes a new image of Comet Nishimura. 

It's tail is growing. The whole comet, tail and coma is aglow with light that is nearly magical. 

The image includes comments on when it will be nearest earth, nearest the sun, comet debris, and where to look for it.

A beauty and an interesting astronomical event.
