The Comet C/2007 N3, also known as Lulin, was discovered in July of 2007. If you would like to take a peek at it, now is the time. It can be seen with binoculars if the sky is clear and there are reports that some have seen it without them. If you have a telescope you might get to see its tail and antitail. Lumin will be closest to the earth February 24. Hit the link if you want more details, like where it can be spotted in your area. And after reading that, go outside and look for it!

Yours truly is a writer by day…sports fanatic by nights and weekends. That combination means one thing: sitting in the cheap seats. If you’re in the same boat, consider the Hands-Free Binocular Glasses, with “2.1x magnification lens optics”, to magnify whatever sporting event, movie, or even lecture you’re viewing. Each lens can be adjusted, focusing from 10 feet to infinity, and even includes “frosted objective lenses” to prevent reflections. The best part is that you wear them as eyeglasses, leaving your hands free to buy you some peanuts and Cracker Jacks while you root, root, root for the home team (sorry, couldn’t resist). A little geeky for sure, but you’ll have a way better view of Jeter sliding home than your fellow Bleacher Creatures…with your hands free to chug that overpriced beer. Available for $120 USD.
