Comet Machholz

Another comet is out there for all to see. Comet Machholz is getting nearer to the earth and sun and is getting brighter as it nears our neighborhood. Four comets have now attained naked-eye brightness for 2005.

I remember all the excitement the recent Hale-Bopp and Kohoutek Comets created for amateur stargazers.
