Comet Holmes, a distant comet now residing in the constellation of Perseus, suddenly went through an increase in brightness. From a mere magnitude 18, it flared up quickly to about 8th magnitude and continued increasing in brightness, up to magnitude 2.8 (1.2 million times brighter than before!) when Japan got their chance to view it.
Being such a bright object, it will also be a naked eye object in Singapore! Don’t miss your chance to see this comet, currently in the constellation of Perseus..
