Correction: TWO Potentially Awesome Comets This Year

With all the excitement over Comet ISON coming through during Thanksgiving, many have overlooked a potentially sweet specter rolling through in less than two months' time: Comet PANSTAARS.

While it will not likely get as bright as ISON could become, anything magnitude 3 or better will be visible nearly everywhere, even the outskirts of major cities, and it may hit that level starting around March 15/16th. It should be barely visible, and brightening, soon after sunset in the West.

If you have considered buying a pair of binoculars or even a telescope, now is the perfect time to jump in time for PANSTAARs and the bigger show ISON. Most telescope companies are still doing post-holiday sales, and even a modest refractor will bring out some nice details of the coma and tail.
