Comet Holmes

Comet Holmes

Oct. 30, 2007
Normally this is just a little, dim, boring come that just king of hangs out as a short period comet in the solar system. In October 2007, the comet decided to show off and get all the attention from everything else in the sky and blow up with a big out-gassing of dust and gas. It got so big it was easy to see as a "new" star in Pegasus for a few months until slowly fading out again.
