>Space Weather News for Oct. 29, 2007
>Last week, Comet 17P/Holmes shocked sky watchers around the world with a
>sudden million-fold increase in brightness. It literally exploded into
>view, rapidly becoming a naked eye "star" in the constellation Perseus.
>Since then the comet has expanded dramatically. It is now physically larger
>than the planet Jupiter and subtends an angle in the night sky similar to
>the Moon's Sea of Tranquility, the right eye of the "Man in the Moon."
>Photographers, this amazing comet is an excellent target for off-the-shelf
>digital cameras and backyard telescopes. It grows visibly from night to
>night and no one knows how large it will become. Stay tuned to
>http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and the latest images.
