hello

This is my Java Applet showing comet positions on a simulated night sky.

http://users.skynet....r/ComShowr.html

Programming is also one of my interests, and this small program once made shows the comets in daylight, twilight or dark, if the moon with her phase doesn't disturb too much, of course the Sun, where the planets are located, and also if the comet rather stands close to a known deepsky object.

Since nice comets are coming, I had in mind to refresh it.

5 comets are added at this time:

C/2011 L4 Panstarrs
C/2012 F6 Lemmon
C/2012 K5 Linear
C/2012 T5 Bressi
C/2012 S1 Ison

hi,

following comets are available now
- C/2012 S1 Ison
- C/2013 R1 Lovejoy
- 2p/Encke

I'm working on it to change it into html5, so java plugin will be no longer needed and it shall work on tablets as well.
