    Comet LoveJoy Steaks Past Earth

    This comet is now visible to the naked eye in dark sky areas during most of January 2015. And it continues to get brighter as it approaches the sun. Read more to learn how to spot it...

    Officially called Comet C/2014 Q2, it is already visible as it makes its closest approach to Earth on Januay 7, passing within 44 million miles of us. But because it'll continue nearing the sun for a few weeks after that — and heating up, creating a tail of vaporized dust and ice — it'll be brightest and most striking in the two weeks after January 7, and may even be visible to the naked eye in cities during that period.

    Regardless of where you live, you can already see the comet each night starting a few hours after sunset. Slate's Phil Plait recommends trying to view it at starting around 9 pm or so, when it'll be relatively high above the horizon. Right now, it's directly below the constellation Orion, making it pretty easy to find.
