A ‘horned’ comet may be visible during the 2024 total solar eclipse

An unusual “horned” comet is now visible in the night sky — and it may even make a rare appearance during the 2024 total solar eclipse on April 8.

Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks can currently be seen in the night skies of the northern hemisphere. Comets, composed of dust, rock and ices, heat up and expel gas when their orbits bring them closer to the sun, creating a glowing halo around the comet itself known as a coma. Outbursts observed from Comet 12P give it a horned-like appearance, earning it nicknames such as “Devil Comet” and “Millennium Falcon.”
