    If it gets too close we may have to bombet.

    I remember this one with great fondness.

    Last comet one could see. Chemist across the street and I went out of town to a local butte to look at it through scopes.
    I looked for this latest comet and never could see it, despite skies that are some of the darkest left in the U.S. (One thing our pollution regs have done is that for about 10 years, one can see star colors, not just white. Used to have field burning for several months and the smoke made it hard to see much at times.)

    We went to the Griffith Park Observatory (Los Angeles) to see it through their big telescope. It looked like a star with a bit of fuzz around it. Not as spectacular as the hype about it.

    I’m pretty sure I won’t be rocking around the clock then, as I’d be 114.

    Not so. I saw the comets Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp in 1996—both were quiet glorious, and not too hard to see even with the naked eye. On the other hand, for us in the Northern Hemisphere at least, Halley in 1986 was quite dim. And I don’t suppose I will be around in 2061 to see it again.
