"NEW" COMET HAS AN INTERESTING PAST AND A BRIGHT FUTURE

Comet Ikeya-Zhang, discovered on February 1st by Kaoru Ikeya and Daqing
Zhang, turns out to be the return of a comet first seen in 1661. It's
currently a 5th magnitude object in Pisces but is difficult to see low in
the west after sunset. Skywatchers in the Northern Hemisphere will likely
get their best views of the comet in late April as it moves through
Cassiopeia and brightens, possibly to 3rd magnitude. More details, plus a
chart showing the path of Comet Ikeya-Zhang, are available on our Web site
