Could a naked-eye Comet really be on its way?

Not since the 90s have we been able to observe a comet with the naked-eye. ☄️ Now, Comet #Atlas may well be our next – this May. How exciting, especially for the children!🤞

I remember my absolute fascination following #HaleBopp and #Hyakutake across the night sky, peering through binoculars and the odd telescope, but generally just sitting back and enjoying the spectacular comets and their tails. Feeling a far-away universe wanderer was close enough to touch, and wondering what mysteries they held in their icy cores. N
