Comet Holmes disappearing?

Posted: November 19, 2007 in Comet 17/P Holmes, Observing

Comet 17/P Holmes was reported by many last night that it wasn’t simply there! But in fact, it is still there moving across the sky in the constellation Perseus.

It is passing infront of the star Mirphak, so maybe the brightness of this star led your eyes to believe that the comet holmes has disappeared. A closer look with binoculars or telescopes will let you know that it is still there, though it is true it is losing its brightness as days go by.

Hubble has been taking close look at this comet. Take a look at this news article at Kosmandu.com homepage: Click here.
