Newly discovered comet will appear brighter than Venus in October 2024 along an 80,000 year orbit.

“At the end of last February astronomers spotted a brand new comet, dubbed C/2023 A3 (Tsuchinshan–ATLAS), which will dazzle Earth’s night sky in October 2024, with some predicting it will be as bright as many of stars or even the planet Venus. Astronomical models suggest that C/2023 A3 orbits the Sun once every 80,660 years and has swooped out of the Oort Cloud, the interstellar fog of debris that extends beyond the influence of the sun’s magnetic field. It is believed that many space objects that enter our solar system originate from the Oort Cloud, which is a distance about 5,000 times the distance between Earth and the Sun. C/2023 A3 is currently about 680 million miles (1.09 billion kilometers) from Earth and will make its nearest approach to the Sun, also called its perihelion, on Sept. 28, 2024. Its closest approach to Earth will occur Oct. 13, 2024, the day before Indigenous People’s Day.”—”Newly discovered comet arriving in 2024 could be brighter than Venus. The arrival of C/2023 A3 (Tsuchinshan–ATLAS) is rare – the comet hasn’t swung by Earth in more than 80,000 years.”
