One is Visible; One is Not
Astronomers typically don’t give astrology much credit, but as a lover of astrology, I find them to be in a synchronized relationship. Who better than an astronomer to report the upcoming comet, which should be visible in the 2nd week of March, right around the time of the New Moon in Pisces. That’s why I subscribe to the online version of Astronomy.com. Here’s a little blurb from their latest newsletter regarding this potent portent of good things to come (although they wouldn’t quite describe it that way themselves), and a lovely picture I borrowed from them – with full credit to the photographer, Guillermo Abramson and of course Astronomy.com.
Everything you need to know about Comet PANSTARRS
The long wait is nearly over. Northern Hemisphere skygazers haven’t seen a bright comet with a long tail since Comet Hale-Bopp graced the night sky in 1997. But if predictions hold, Comet PANSTARRS (C/2011 L4) should be a nice naked-eye object and look impressive through binoculars after sunset starting in the second week of March. Stay tuned to www.astronomy.com/panstarrs for complete coverage, including finder charts, observing tips, videos, photos, and more.
Just a note, if you’re interested, it’s free to sign up on their website, and when you do you get a lot of information about what’s going on in the sky. Also there are other beautiful photos on the site – one in particular I love of an angel statue and the comet in the background shot in Sydney, Australia. Check it out – sign up (this is not a paid endorsement LOL) www.astronomy.com
PS: If you ever wanted to physically go outside and look up into the stars and tell the universe exactly what you would like to bring into your life – now would be one of those times – The universe is always listening, always there, but there are some times when wishes carry wings. Words have power (and so do you).
