This comet is getting brighter, and they are saying that it should be able to be seen with binoculars before long. It is one that comes through about every five years, and was last here in 2011. It is coming closer and will make its swing around the sun before long and then head back out again. The time that it will be closest to the earth is when it is heading back out, and will be in February. According to the video I was watching, it is most likely to break and lose parts as it swings around the sun; so it is possible that we will see parts of the comet falling away, and have meteor showers.
