Kudos to the Russian men who discovered the comet! These days with automated observatories sweeping comets and asteroids from the sky, makes it all the more exciting when amateur astronomers find them. Lets hope this one pans out big!

It’s certainly worth an effort to find a truly dark-sky environment at the appropriate time(s) to view such a celestial event!

Once again, theories are presented as facts. The Oort Cloud has never been observed. It has only been hypothesized. The article does not make that clear, but rather treats it as a fact. The Oort Cloud may actually exist, but it has not been observed. This is deplorable.
