Comet Lulin Visits the Beehive
Fading comet Lulin can still be seen in binoculars, and on Friday March 6 Lulin passes withing a binocular filed of the Beehive cluster. The glowing patch of the comet and the twinkling stars of the Beehive would look beautiful together, but the waxing Moon may dim their splendor somewhat.
Have a look anyway (its cloudy here).
