@gc fans:

does anyone own/have a link to the visual bootleg of the great comet? i hate to continually ask but i now have 106 messages asking for boots which i dont own and i want to update that boot leg masterpost. I’ll gladly take any audio, visual or video stuff y’all have and re-compile it now that the Comet is the most nominated show on B-way!!

Seymour Has Seen One Thousand Spheres
The March Of Time, The Trot Of Years
Does Not Abate, Will Never End
The Cylic Crunch, The Tear And Mend.

Bubbles Are Linked In Higher Land
Your Weak Mind Cannought Understand
The Way With Which It See’s Such Things
But In Your Sleep Far-Off Sphere Sings.

Some People Blessed By Cosmic Gourds
To Never Die, To Be Death-Lords
Bouncing From Spheres Upon Release
Their Endless Lives Will Never Cease.

From Dreams Of Tapir Visiting
Seym Sees Your Are Exhibiting
These Signs Of Life Forever Bound
To Spheres Where You May Roam Around.

In 2012 When Comet Hits
Tapir Will Give Survival Tips
From Him You Learn To Bounce Alone
To New Wild Space To Call Your Home.

Two comets pass in the night bound for your telescope

Remember comets Lovejoy and C/2012 X1 LINEAR? We dropped in on them in late January. On Feb. 6 the two cruised within  2 degrees of each other as they tracked through Ophiuchus before dawn.  Were it not for bad weather, astrophotographer Damian Peach would have been out to record the cometary conjunction, but this unique photo, taken two mornings later, shows the two comets chasing each other across the sky. Of course they’re not really following one another, nor are they related,  but the illusion is wonderful.

Comet PANSTARRS K1 swings by the Big Dipper this week, sprouts second tail

Comets often play hard to get. That’s why we enjoy those rare opportunities when they pass close to naked eye stars. For a change, they’re easy to find! That’s exactly what happens in the coming nights when the moderately bright comet C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS slides past the end of the Big Dipper’s handle.

Comet C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS displays two tails in this excellent image taken remotely with a telescope in New Mexico. The shorter, brighter spike is the dust tail; the longer is the ion tail with distinct kinks caused by interactions with the solar wind.
