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.
