I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

Here's a new comet for your viewing pleasure. And a swallowtail comet to boot!

Comet Catalina was discovered in 2013, and is currently only visible in the Southern Hemisphere, and then only with binoculars. But as it moves closer the the sun, it could become visible to the naked eye. Or not. You never know with comets.

It will move into the Northern Hemisphere in December. Where it may or may not be visible -- see above.
