Bright Green Comet, 46P/Wirtanen, Will Be Visible From Earth Next Week

Stargazers are in for an early Christmas treat next week because a large, bright-green comet that’s orbiting the Sun will be visible from Earth with the naked eye.

Comet 46P/Wirtanen is three-quarters of a mile wide and can already be viewed with a telescope. Astronomers have reported seeing its green aura glow as far as Jupiter, but NASA says the best view is yet to come.
