Comet Garradd C/2009 P1 to be brightest in mid-late February

The best observation opportunity for a comet that is approaching Earth will be Saturday until Feb. 24, when its visibility reaches its peak,

Comet C/2009 P1 (Garradd) will reach a magnitude of around 6 during the period, which means that anyone equipped with binoculars will be easily able tolocate it, assuming that the skies are clear of cloud, 

Discovered in 2009 by an Australian observatory, Garradd will also pass close to globular star cluster M92, forming a rare celestial sight.
