Comet Pan-STARRS has been brightening up Canadian skies over the last few days, giving sky watchers the chance to view the spectacle.
"Comet Pan-STARRS was first discovered almost two years ago by a Hawaiian telescope survey of asteroids," says astronomer Andrew Fazekas. "It first came up as a smugdy little dot on images, but now it's blossomed over a million fold in its brightness."
With a clear sky and a pair of binoculars, it should continue to be visible over the next week or so.
"It's easily visible with the naked eye looking towards the low western horizon about a half hour to an hour after local sunset," adds Fazekas.
It's believed to be billions of years old and is believed to have originated in the Oort cloud, a collection of icy debris outside the solar system thought to be a light-year away.
Scientists don't believe the comet poses any risk to Earth.
