Comet Catalina’s closest point to Earth January 9, 2016

This coming week, Comet Catalina will be at its closest to Earth. Unfortunately, it’s only about a magnitude 6, so you’ll need a ‘scope if you want to see it. Also, if you’re in the southern hemisphere, you won’t be able to see it. For those up us up north, it’s skimming right along the handle of the Big Dipper, so at least it’s easy to find! Maps and more details from EarthSky.
