Rare comet will be visible to the naked eye

Amazing images of the comet, called Pan-STARRS, were captured from Mount Dale in Western Australia. The comet is now visible in the Northern Hemisphere.

The best shot of the comet will be Sunday about 15 minutes after twilight. A NASA scientist says the comet is going to be low on the western horizon, so you'll need a relatively unobstructed view to the southwest.

And, you'll never see it again. Astronomers say Pan-STARRS takes more than 100 million years to complete a full cycle around the sun.
