Re: Catch Moon, Venus, Jupiter--great show up there

The evening sky has been unusually clear here in Maryland for the past few weeks, my wife and have been able to clearly see Jupiter and Venus nearly every night, and we also saw the comet for at least three nights, which was an incredible sight. The comet appeared to have a series of oscillating red and blue lights, which was enhanced when viewed through 12-power binoculars. I've never seen that before and I assume it was just changes in the light spectrum through the atmosphere.
