Comet Half-the Size of the Sun Will be Visible Next Month
Breaking Israel News reports:
A rare comet with an atmosphere half the size of the sun is approaching the earth and by next month and should be visible in the night sky.
Known as C/2019 Y4, or simply ATLAS, the comet is currently passing through the orbit of mars, about 97,357,463 miles from the Earth and appears at about the brightness of an 8th-magnitude star. Though not visible to the eye yet, the comet is currently visible through medium-sized telescopes, glowing green from its diatomic carbon content.
