Comet Elenin - a potential for a spectacular sky show late summer
Comet Elenin is coming in along a projected route along the ecliptic plane (the same plane that earth orbits on) and is expected to be very visable to the naked eye.

There is the potential that there may be a sky show as the earth passes thru Elenin's tail. Current calculations have the comet passing within .45 AU of the earth (Astronomical Units = the distance from the earth to the sun, i.e 93 million miles).

As the months pass, the orbital data will be more refined, but as it stands now - it looks like we are in for a show.
