Experts say Pan-STARRS will emerge in the western sunset sky not far from the crescent moon. The comet's tail will probably require binoculars or a small telescope to see, though the gaseous coma around the head of the comet should be visible to the naked eye. It is expected to be visible in the west just after sunset for up to an hour.
The opportunity to see Pan-STARRS only comes along every 100 million years, according to NASA.gov. So don't miss out!
