Two For...

...the price of one.

Comets, that is. One today, one tomorrow. The unusual double flyby is probably caused by them being parts of a single comet that got broken apart, likely by getting a bit too close to Jupiter. The first one may be bright enough to be seen with the naked eye, but the full moon could interfere.

The comets will be most visible in the southern hemisphere.
