I have a telescope that I don't really know how to use. This might be a good week to figure it out, as the brightest comet of 2018 will pass close to earth on December 16th.

And by "close to earth" I mean just over 7 million miles away. If I play my cards right, I won't even need the telescope. Experts say that if it's dark enough, it's possible you could see the comet with your naked eye. However, binoculars or a telescope would make it much more exciting!
