“You never know what a pristine comet might do..”

It’s not looking likely here, but should you have clear skies tonight you’ll be treated to the biggest brightest full moon of the year – yes it’s time for another perigee moon. Hopefully the skies will be clear in February when Comet Lulin passes closest to the Earth [on 24th] and should be dimly visible. But as SpaceWeather says
