      GREEN COMET: There's a new comet in the southern hemisphere: Comet
      Lovejoy (C/2007 E2). Terry Lovejoy of Australia discovered it on
      March
      15th using, remarkably, not a telescope but only an off-the-shelf
      digital
      camera. The green comet is too dim to see with the naked eye, but it
      is a nice target for backyard telescopes. After five days of
      monitoring, the comet's orbit is now known with some accuracy and it
      is possible
      to make predictions about Comet Lovejoy's future movements and
      brightness. Visit http://spaceweather.com for details.

      BONUS--VENUS AND THE MOON: When the sun goes down tonight, step
      outside
      and look west. You'll see Venus and the slender crescent Moon beaming
      together through the glow of sunset. If you miss the pair on March
      20th,
      try again on the 21st. They will be beautifully close together on
      both
      nights.
