A new comet called PanSTARRS is visiting the inner solar system and will be visible to the unaided eye from mid- to late March.

PanSTARRS will make its closest approach to the sun on Sunday, March 10, after which it will brighten and become visible to observers in the northern hemisphere as it begins its return trip to the outer reaches of the solar system. It is estimated that it will reach its brightest during the week of March 11-17, when it will be visible to the unaided eye.

For this special occasion, the Lake Afton Public Observatory will have two programs to observe Comet PanSTARRS from 7:20-8:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, March 12 and 13.
