COMING SOON, THE COMET OF THE YEAR:  Get ready for a very nice comet. In exactly two months, Comet 46P/Wirtanen will sweep past Earth, making one of the 10 closest approaches of a comet to our planet during the Space Age.

If forecasters are correct, Comet Wirtanen could become visible to the naked eye for weeks in Dec. 2018. The small but unusually active comet comes closest to Earth just four days after its closest approach to the sun, and it will be “up” all night long, making this an exceptional flyby.

Visit Spaceweather.com for the full story.
