The Tallahassee Astronomical Society will be stargazing at Lake Ella as Comet Lulin becomes visible after 9:00 Tuesday evening. T.A.S says Comet Lulin is unique because of its unusual glow, which they say is unlike many other comets.
Ken Kopczynski with T.A.S. said, "It's a fairly new comet. I think this might be its first pass, so it's zippin', I mean it's really moving very quick and it's also going to be close to the planet Saturn, not in terms of distance, but just because of the perspective in the sky."
Although Lulin will not be visible until 9:00 Tuesday night, the astronomical society says it will set up at Lake Ella when the sun goes down.
