Twitterverse looks skyward for glimpse of Comet PanSTARRS [photos]

Tonight is probably your best opportunity to see Comet PanSTARRS, if you’re fortunate enough to have clear skies and a good view of the crescent moon. Under the right conditions, the comet is visible to the naked eye.

All of you Queen fans do know that guitarist Brian May is also an astrophysicist, right?

Even those who didn’t see the comet were treated to some spectacular sunsets.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to see in a darker sky?

      It’s too close to the sun. By the time it’s fully dark, it would be below the horizon. Same reason you only see Venus for a short time after sunset.

      Since it’s so “close” to the sun, it can only be seen right at sunset. Any later and it disappears underneath the horizon.

    The Bible in Revelations warns us of a huge Asteroid that will hit earth during the Great Tribulation period that is coming……..Turn to the Lord who Loved, died and rose again for you………..He will come into your heart if you sincerely ask Him, by giving you the Holy Spirit and Eternal Life..

    …………Revelation8: 8-11……..8 The second angel blew his trumpet. Then something that looked like a big mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. And a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the created beings in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

    That’s why I lose it every time for the last three days, foliage and the horizon dip
