People looking at the morning sky this month might notice a rare celestial body.
NASA says a glowing green comet will make an appearance for the first time in 50,000 years.
It will have streaking tails of dust and could appear fuzzy.
The comet will be closest to the sun Thursday and closest to Earth between Feb. 1 and 2.
The Earth is passing through the tail of a comet, an event which has not occurred in 65 million years and coincided with the extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs. On the night of the comet’s passage, eleven days before Christmas, large crowds gather outside to watch and celebrate.
If we survive, perhaps on February 3 I will start my screenplay for a mash-up of a zombie movie and Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow.
