Comet Very Visible in Sky Over Brazos Valley

By  | 

You've still got a few chances to see the incredible Comet Pan-STARRS that won't come back to this part of the universe in our lifetime.

This is a picture sent in by one of our viewers, James Brown of Bryan, who took the picture at 7:49 Tuesday night.

The comet should be easy to spot over the next few days near the west horizon, and should be visible around 8pm.

Wednesday night it should appear just below the moon.

It has just completed its first trip by the sun and isn't going to return to this part of the solar system for a million years.

A number of people gathered at the Taco Bell at Tower Point in south College Station Tuesday night for a little comet watching.
