Lulin The Green Comet On February 24th

This is cool. On the morning of February 24th 2009, a green comet known as Lulin may become visible to the naked eye. The Nasa website contains three dates that track the comment leading up to February 24th as well as sky maps.

Feb. 24th: Closest approach! On this special morning, Lulin will lie just a few degrees from Saturn in the constellation Leo. Saturn is obvious to the unaided eye, and Lulin could be as well. If this doesn’t draw you out of bed, nothing will.

Will you be out looking for Lulin on the morning of Feb 24th? I’ll try to get out and see it myself. Just hope the weather cooperates.
