Comet sightings, Northwest style
This cluster of Comets, originally discovered in Houston, is also defunct and may be difficult to see without some guidance -- look closely and you can spot one just to the left of Lauren Jackson there. These Comets were anointed the brightest stars in their league in the late 1990s and in 2000 but fizzled in 2009 and have not been seen since.
