!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

Our newsfeeds are lighting up about the “green comet” visiting us for the first time since Neanderthals walked the earth. For more information. 

The good news is the faint Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) is visible now though mid-February if you know where and when to look. The bad news is you likely need binoculars or a telescope, and you will have to deal with the fickle clouds and the light of the moon.

Come observe the comet at the Trail 53 Dark Sky Observatory Site!

The Lyme Land Trust astronomy group is invested in helping you appreciate the wonders of the dark sky. To catch a view of the green comet before it recedes deep into the solar system, we will do our best to have at least one telescope ready at our dark sky site each evening from January 31 through February 10. To the extent feasible, we will be out from sunset until 8pm every night that is free of clouds. Check in with us to confirm if we will be out that night. 

On any evening from January 31 to February 10 that you wish to come by and observe the comet, please email us at astronomy@lymelandtrust.org. We will respond to let you know if we will be at the dark sky site and to provide directions.
