John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Alan Hale to discuss comets with us. Alan talked about the origins of comets dating from the early solar system formation. We talked about the Ort Cloud, Kuiper Belt and comets having a green glow and why. We spent time with the current comet in our sky, Comet ZTF, including where and how best to see it with the naked eye or binoculars. John talked about comets being neanderthal dating back 50,000 years or more.
