Watching The Sky

The Observing page at Sky and Telescope lists weekly celestial events you can watch out for. This week: …two comets will put on rather different performances in each hemisphere. For skywatchers living at north temperate latitudes, Comet NEAT promises the easiest show to watch. In early May, just when NEAT is brightest, it will rapidly climb out of the Sun’s glare into good view above the southwest horizon after sunset.
