The Comet, Which Is Going To Be Close To The Earth

On 16 December i.e. a comet is going to be very close to the Earth. In the last 70 years, it is considered to be the brightest comet ever. According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa), this comet can also be seen to help with binoculars.

46 P Wirtanen has already been seen through big telescopes. But so far the correct information about the brightness in it can not be found. But it is believed that as the comet approaches the sun, its glow will grow.

The Comet, Which Is Going To Be Close To The Earth

This comet named 46 P Wirtanen will move towards the Sun passing through about 11 million km approx of earth on December 16. Such a situation arises very rarely.

NASA said in a statement on 14 December 2018 that it is believed that comets can be seen with telescopes or naked eyes when it closes the Earth.

In California, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Near Earth Object Studies Manager Paul said, "These comets will be one of the closest comets to Earth for many centuries."

He further stated that in the coming years, the comets which can be seen in the most spectacular comet may also be the brightest comets. This will help astronomers gain more information about comets.
