Comet Lulin

None, however, can not say anything for sure, because it turns out to be the first visit Lulin (Lulin) in the solar system, and the first time a comet is exposed intense sunlight. So there can be surprises. Green comet Lulin (Lulin) caused by gases that make up its atmosphere, which is typical for celestial bodies the size of Jupiter. Jets of gas erupting from the core comets contain cyanogen (CN: poisonous gas found in many comets) and diatomic carbon (C2). Both substances glow green when illuminated by sunlight in space, which is almost a vacuum. In 1910, many people panic, when astronomers announced that the Earth will pass through the tail of Halley's comet (Halley), which is saturated with cyanogen.

False alarm: smoked tail of the comet could not penetrate the dense atmosphere of Earth, even if it happened, of cyanide would be enough to create a real threat. Comet Lulin (Lulin) will be cause for concern even to a lesser extent than Halley's comet (Halley). In late February, as close to Earth, Lulin (Lulin) freezes at a distance of 38 million miles from Earth, which is perfectly safe. To see the comet Lulin (Lulin) with my own eyes, make sure that your alarm signaled at 3 o'clock in the morning. Comet appears in a few hours before sunrise, and it can be seen somewhere in the upper third of the southern sky shortly before dawn. Here are some of the dates on which it is particularly easy to find: 2nd February: Comet Lulin (Lulin) smoothly moves to Zubenelgenubi, double star in the center of the cups of the constellation Libra (Libra).
