Listen: Celebrate the Coming of Comet 46P with The Comet Is Coming

Next week, Comet 46P/Wirtanen will come within 7.1 million miles of Earth, making it the brightest comet in our skies all year. You should be able to detect it with the naked eye. Though astronomers have assured us that there’s no chance it will make contact with us, how about a little party with The Comet is Coming, coming to Knoxville in March, in anticipation? It’s the irrepressible “Space Carnival.” Read more about 46P here.
