A Comet Is Coming

A comet is coming.

On Thursday night, comet 168P/Hergenrother is forecast to reach its brightest point.

In-The-Sky.org explained: “From London, it will be visible in the dawn sky, rising at 21:16 (BST) – 8 hours and 41 minutes before the Sun – and reaching an altitude of 53° above the eastern horizon before fading from view as dawn breaks around 04:25.”

However, speaking to Mirror Online, Robert Massey, Deputy Director of the Royal Astronomical Society, explained that the chances of seeing it are fairly low.

He said: “The problem is that no one has actually seen the comet this year, and in any case it would be pretty faint.”
