Atlanta Weather | Good Star Gazing Tonight

Meteorologist Mike Francis talked about the Pan-Starrs comet last week and the time is here for viewing. Break out the telescope and binoculars for better viewing but you will be able to see this one with the naked eye. NASA scientists say that the comet should emerge from the sun's glare and be visible to the naked eye tonight.  The comet can be seen next to the crescent moon in the twilight sky just before sunset. 

This viewing is a once in a 5 to 10 year chance, as scientist estimate, as viewing comets are rare to view with the naked eye. Pan-Starrs comet's visibility in the night sky will progressively fade away each following day after March 12.
