Amazing Optical Illusion
The exploding comet (!!) 17P/Holmes now has an atmosphere that is bigger than the sun.
You can read all about it, including where it is in the sky, how you can find it and how you can watch it apparently eat a star. All exciting stuff if you have so much as a whit of astronomy in your soul.
Even if you don't, CHECK THIS OUT. If you don't think this is animated, your brain works differently from mine.
Let me know.
