Comet 45P To Fly By New Year’s Eve
This New Year's Eve while you're watching the ball drop in Downtown Bangor, you may be able to see a comet to the left of the crescent moon.
According the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the comet with a name to long to print here, makes a return to the inner solar system about once every five years. You'll need a telescope or binoculars to check it out! Look for a blueish green head with a long blue tail.
The National Weather Service is predicting a cloudy New Year's Eve here in Bangor, with snow likely, possibly 3 to five inches, so we may be out of luck. But, here's hoping!
