Close Comet
The comet Pan-STARRS, left, is visible next to a crescent moon in the western sky after sunset over Westminster, Md. Tuesday, March 12, 2013. The comet's name is actually an acronym for the telescope in Hawaii used to discover it two years ago: the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System. It will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere for weeks to come. (AP Photo/The Carroll County Times, Dylan Slagle)
