Comets to Watch
From the Northern Isles the Comet, C2009 P1Garradd, is clearly visible. It continues to brighten particularly in the late evening. Look to the southern skies as the Moon becomes less radiant over the coming nights. In the south of the UK, we will have to make to do with that electrical appliance retailer, Comet, where sales have fallen 22% in the past three months and a trading decision will be made by the end of the year. That does make two Comets to watch!
