Halleys cpmet may now be seen on

The most favorable time to look for
it is between 630 and 730 p m with
the glass elevated somewhat above the
point where the nun sets The comet
is at present in what the astronomers
call the twilight region It is in line
with the sun and its brightness is there
fore dimmed It will be visible all
through April ana May but at its max
imum brilliancy on May 18
When the comet is nearest the earth
it will be only about 14000000 miles
