A once in a lifetime fly by..

As if this wasn't already a packed year for star gazers, it appears we can add another major Astronomical event to the list of  " should see " events.. 

While the " exact " details regarding brightness ..to the un-aided eye- are still unknown, at this moment at least,  if it does survive it's approach to and away from the Sun, the " window for viewing " will be a once in a lifetime event as the mentioned Comet may not ever pass through our Solar System again.  If it does, it will be 100's or 1,000's of years for now.. 

Already scheduled some early mornings.. Hopefully it will be cooler by then, lol..

So... dumb, un-researched question, would this be visible from New Caledonia next September?

Must admit, I am old enough to have been majorly disappointed by many a comet in my lifetime.

Next?  September?   That's one long Comet, lol  :hmm:

Yep, been a few that have ..ahem' " Flamed out " before making a " suggested " appearance.   

Since the " main event " is just a couple weeks away, should have a pretty good idea on what this one decides to do soon..  




Remember, there is an Annular Eclipse Oct. 14th ( Am ) too.  Won't really be visible in HI. though :(
