Green Comet Approaches Earth

It could be Night of the Green Comet soon as the comet Lulin makes its approach to Earth.The comet, discovered in July 2007 by Chinese astonomer Quanzhi Ye, will be at its closest point to Earth on 24 February with an estimates maximum brightness at 4th or 5th magnitude. Doomsday predictors needn’t be concerned, however, as at its closest point, Lulin will still be 38 million miles from Earth.
