Bratislava – an unusual phenomenon, space theatre, extraterrestrial performance. Something unusual awaits us in Slovakia in the coming days, which will be repeated after 70 thousand years. A comet approaches Earth, lighting up the sky like New Year’s Eve during a fireworks display.

We can watch it during the month of December. The sky in the northern hemisphere will be visible to the telescope before sunrise, but astronomers have announced that by the end of the year it will be visible shortly after sunset. Looking forward to the wonderful celestial theater “ICE”. The comet has been named Leonard and will orbit the Earth for the first time in 70,000 years. So if you want to see it, prepare. You probably won’t live to see her next trip. The comet will have a green tail. Its interior is made of ice, and as you get closer to the sun, its interior becomes more and more warm. So initially blue, yellow, white and finally green light is emitted. When its tail turns blue-green, it means that it is hot inside. It contains a lot of cyanide and diatomic carbon, which also increases the possibility of its explosion, “ inform imeteo.sk.
