- 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.
