2013 is shaping up to be the "Year of the Comets" as we have THREE comets that MAY become real crowd pleasers this year.
Next month Come Pan-STARRS may become a naked eye object easily visible in the northern sky. Comets are notoriously hard to predict what they will do but this comet is on its first pass ever through the inner solar system and the Sun so it may put on a show for sky watchers.
Only time and the comet itself will tell.

I'll have much more on this comet as well as the other two but I am REALLY excited about the possibilities!
