NASA Preparing for 2014 Comet Watch at Mars


www.nasa.gov said:

This spring, NASA will be paying cautious attention to a comet that could put on a barnstorming show at Mars on Oct. 19, 2014.

On that date, comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring will buzz Mars about 10 times closer than any identified comet has ever flown past Earth.

Nuts, probably not visible from the Northern Hemisphere. I miss Hale-Bopp!
