NSU Astronomers Predict Meteor Shower Outbreak and Record Return of Near Earth Comet NSU Astronomers Predict Meteor Shower Outbreak and Record Return of Near Earth Comet

On September 11, 2018, Comet 21P / Giacobini-Zinner passed the Earth’s orbit point closest to the Sun and was at a relatively short distance from the planet (58.6 million km). This caused the comet to reach a seven star magnitude of brightness, which meant it was almost observable by the naked eye. Most comets that can be observed with the naked eye are not in the visible part of the sky. However, some comets can be observed with a slight magnification. The Comet 21P / Giacobini-Zinner is notably visible with telescopes and binoculars, and has become a good subject to photograph. Mikhail Maslov, a leading engineer at the NSU Observatory, was able to capture it.
