      For those of you with a penchant for sky-watching, the pieces of
      disintegrating comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 (catchy name...just
      rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?) are making a high-speed pass by
      the Earth between May 12 and 14.  Since the comet is breaking up,
      there is a lot of dust and it should be fairly bright - easily
      visible with binoculars. For more information see the Spaceweather
      Web site at http://spaceweather.com.
