Catalina – a naked-eye Comet is coming

C/2013 US10 (Catalina) is an Oort cloud comet discovered on 31 October 2013. The comet will come to solar conjunction on 6 November 2015 when it might be around magnitude 5 and it will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 15 November 2015 at a distance of 0.82 AU from the Sun. Catalina is already at the threshold of the naked eye visibility.

On 26th November, it will cross the Ecliptic between Zubenelgenubi (Alpha Librae) and Spica (Alpha Virginis), in the middle of the tropical Scorpio and sidereal Libra. On New Year’s Eve, we can view it very close to Arcturus (Alpha Bootis). Of course, near perihelion, the Comet’s paths can be significantly modified or the comet can be destroyed by Sun like Comet ISON in 2014.
