Did you know there’s a comet visible this week?

Comet Lulin

Comet Lulin is visible in our sky this week.  It’s passing “close” to the planet Saturn and the star Regulus in the constellation Leo.  An article by Nancy Atkinson helps you find it in the sky.  The article mentions that you can see it with good binoculars.

Here in the Rochester area we might have a small window of opportunity to see it tonight, Wednesday or Saturday night (based on the weather forecast on weather.com).
