Generic comet photoIf you go out tonight (around 9:00 if you're on the east coast of the United States) and look southeast you'll see a marvel: a green comet with 2 tails named Lulin streaking along right next to the planet Saturn. In most civilized places you may need a pair of binoculars to see it clearly, but if you're out in the wilderness these 2 lights should glimmer above you with gold-green brilliance.

The best time to see it will be around 1:00 a.m., if you are that dedicated on a work night. For a handy map to find Lulin and other information, please go here.
