Comet Coming Close To Earth On April 1st

A comet is coming close to Earth on April 1st, and that's no joke.  Astronomers say the comet will make its closest fly-by of Earth since it was discovered in 1858. 

 However, "closest" doesn't mean close.  The comet will be more than 13-million miles from Earth when it sails past. says amateur astronomers with small telescopes can get a good look.  The best time to look will be around 9 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday.  

That's when the comet should be near the handle of the Big Dipper in the northern sky.
