There was a Horizon special on last night that's worth looking at on the iPlayer.
What I don't get is that some of these comets have been flying around for 4 billion years plus, and are about 25km in diameter, but if that's the case, how is any of them left with the matter that comes off in the tail over that great time?
if it was not the comet what was it? too big for a star very intense brightness, magnified it to max on the laptop the blurred pixels had a light yellow in the centre and a slight pink to bottom right.
looking out to the english channel it was slightly to the west at 5.20pm heading east or north east. too cloudy tonight to see if its back.
did not think at the time should have used google nght sky to check. surprised nothing else reported everyone was looking up at it and it was around for ages.
