Cosmic Encounter: comet Pan-STARRS meets the Great Andromeda Galaxy
While leaving the inner Solar System, comet Pan-STARRS continues surfing our skies and next 4 Apr. 2013 it will cross the spot of the sky where Messier 31, the Great Andromeda Galaxy, is. Of course, it will only be a prospective close approach: the comet will be around 100 millions of km away, while M31 at 20.000.000.000.000.000.000 km.
We will show this cosmic encounter online, live, on our webTV, with real-time commentary by our scientific staff. This is a unique opportunity, do not miss it!
