Hey, Space Placers!
Go to a dark room and use the biggest monitor you have and loop this amazing space view footage of Comet Leonard, which is in our planet's skies now.
I love this clip because it is in black and white and with the Milky Way, bright stars and the comet being visible really gives the viewer a sensation of being in space. You can imagine being there to see this in our solar system for yourself through a spacecraft window or spacewalk.
With today being the Winter Solstice at 10:58 am EST, enjoy the night skies that are longer during this time of year (Northern Hemisphere).
Don't forget to tune in for my JWST reporting on WTOP.com starting today.
