> Hi, This is Dr. Tony Phillips calling with an alert about Comet Holmes.
> It's Monday, Nov. 19th.
> This a message for people with backyard telescopes. Tonight, Comet
> 17P/Holmes will swallow a star! Not really, but the comet will pass
> directly in front of the star--named Mirfak, the brightest star of the
> constellation Perseus. The overall effect will be that of a giant cosmic
> jellyfish swallowing a phosphorescent treat. You can see it happen through
> even a small backyard telescope. The stellar "meal" will continue for the
> next few nights, so if you miss it tonight, try again tomorrow.
