A new comet is fast approaching the planet. Comet Lulin was discovered by a 19-year old Chinese guy named Quanzhi Ye. He have longed anticipated for this marvelous milestone in his life. His dream came true last July 2007.

Astronomers say that the green comet can be seen in the sky by our naked eyes. I was looking the night sky by I can’t seem to find it. According to NASA, it should be visible any time now.

I really anticipate in seeing a comet. Hopefully I could gaze at it’s beauty.

Sadly, I don’t have a telescope. Aw!😦

But still, I won’t give up. I’ll try to look for it again.🙂
