Comet approaches Earth for April 1st flyby

No kidding. Green comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresak is flying over Earth’s North Pole this week where sky watchers can find it all night long not far from the bowl of the Big Dipper.

At closest approach on April 1st it will be just 21 million km from Earth – an easy target for backyard telescopes and almost visible to the naked eye.
