Green Visitor

Given the hoopla regarding UFOs over the past year, one might not want to hear any more about green visitors. :-) Yet, this one is of a different variety. It is a rare green comet called Lulin. The coolest thing that I have seen in the night sky was comet Hale-Bopp about a decade ago. It was a big blue traveler that passed close enough to the earth to be clearly seen for days with the naked eye and easily photographed. Although Lulin came closest to the earth about a week ago, it was barely visible to the naked eye...still such things are a wondrous sight. Most of us probably missed it, so...enjoy. Blessings,
