Comet to soar over Israel

For the next couple of weeks, Israelis will have an opportunity during sunset and sunrise to see a comet soar through the skies.
The comet, called Panstarrs C/2011 L4, will pass by on Monday – as it did on Sunday – at sunset and a little after, visible on the right side of the setting sun, explained Dr. Igal Patel, head of the Givatayim Observatory and chairman of the Israeli Astronomical Association.
