Stargazers will get an opportunity to check out the comet Pan-STARRS, Friday.
It’s expected to pass within 160-million kilometres of Earth — the comet’s closest approach in its first ever cruise through the inner solar system.
Stargazers might be able to spot it next to the moon at dusk in the western sky. Click here for the Virtual Telescope.
If you miss this one, an even larger comet is set to pass by the earth in November.
