      Space Weather News for May 2, 2001
      http://www.spaceweather.com

      Yesterday astronomers reported that the nucleus of comet C/2001 A2
      (LINEAR) has apparently split in two. This icy visitor from the outer
      solar system is growing in brightness as it approaches the Sun and could
      soon become a faint naked-eye object. Sky watchers with modest telescopes
      or binoculars can spot the fuzzy fragmenting comet near the feet of Orion
      after sunset. The comet is rapidly gliding toward southern skies, so
      southern hemisphere observers will enjoy the best views in the days and
      weeks ahead.
