Comet Lovejoy

Ii am absolutely an advocate of homeschool!


Tonight  my friend and I (my mom and 1 friend) went outside to see Comet Lovejoy. It was very hard to find. It was west of Orion and south of the Pleiades. We used 2 cheap binoculars. The binocular I used was a 8×21. The comet was dim enough that it was difficult to spot.  You could see it, but then it would seem to disappear. It looked like a dim green light in the sky.  It will be visible for a few more weeks then won’t be back for 8,000 years.
