I see that the British tabloids are spouting nonsense about 168P/Hergenrother (see - https://www.mirror.c...y-week-18946949 ).
Of course the problem is some people believe such nonsense even when the hook-you-in headline is:
"Huge comet will fly past Earth this week - and there's a chance you could see it"
and the write up below deflates the hook when it says:
"However, speaking to Mirror Online, Robert Massey, Deputy Director of the Royal Astronomical Society, explained that the chances of seeing it are fairly low. He said: "The problem is that no one has actually seen the comet this year, and in any case it would be pretty faint."
You just have to laugh
