Within the end of the year, we will have 3 known comets crossing earths orbit pretty closely. They are called Elenin, Honda, and Levy. Levy being the closest being about .0022AU(AU = Astromonical Units, 1.000 = the distance the Earth is from the Sun Moon is .0001AU away.) away from us.
It will be pretty awesome to watch. If you missed Haley's Comet this time around. You can see 3 of them coming very soon. All of them will be leaving their tail debris in our path leading to meteor showers.
I know that Elenin is coming from the Leo constellation between its rear legs in the west just after sundown you should see Leo. I'm not too sure about the others yet.
Any other Space nuts out there?
