Keep watching the March night skies for #Comet #PanSTARRS – an annotated graphic

Attention, budding astronomers and those of a general cosmic bent: over the next couple of weeks, the comet PanSTARRS should be visible to the naked eye in the northern hemisphere, being visible above the western horizon just after sunset.

PanSTARRS is making her first visit to our inner solar system, so let’s make her feel right at home. Give her a wave as she passes overhead!
