Beginning in December and through most of 2017 we will have several comets to view. The first of them we are able to see is Comet with the enigmatic name Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova. This periodic comet returns to the inner solar system every 5.25 years. It appeared low on the western horizon on December 15th and by the 21st it already appeared almost as Christmas star with a bluish-green head and the fan-shaped tail. On New Year Eve this Comet and the crescent Moon will rendezvous to say farewell to 2016… Believe the last celestial performance 2016 promises good luck in the coming year 🙂 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
