Chevdove Posted January 12 Report Share Posted January 12 **********A GREEN COMET********** IN THE SKY THIS WEEK! Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) This comet that was first detected last year is said to be visible with binoculars this week. I am intrigued! I remember the comet of 2020 that was supposedly visible for months, however, no matter how much I tried to view it through a telescope to see the 'tail', I just could not operate my telescope to see it. I did see it with though, position below the Big Dipper however, I just wanted to see the actual 'tail'. But, A GREEN COMET!? That's interesting! This particular comet discovered March of last year inside the orbit of Jupiter. In about a week, it will be closer to Mars. I am fascinated with the science behind comets and believe that there is a lot more that scientist have not discovered about them. I wonder if they have a significant affect on earth in some way. I remember in 2020, it rained and rained for most of the entire summer and wonder if that comet had anything to do with that, and more. Anyhoo, If anyone gets a chance to see this GREEN COMET, I hope that you do share! _______________________________________________________________________ Rare, green comet to pass by Earth starting this week Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) will reach perihelion on Jan. 12.
