Take a look at comet Lulin

I spend a fair amount of time looking up at the night skies, nothing gives me that kind of an instant break. I went to a seminar once and the seminar leader encouraged all of us who were participating to tell our problems to the stars and watch them not do anything in response. It sounds callous, but I can't think of a better way to put my own trials and tribulations into perspective. What's a big deal to me is in the big scheme of things, not a big deal.

Anyhow, if you look up and find Saturn tonight there will be a fuzzy ball right below it. That fuzzy ball is the comet Lulin and Lulin is currently making its one and only pass through our solar system. After Friday you probably won't be able to see it again. It will leave our solar system and continue on its trajectory into the far reaches of space, never to be seen by anyone again. At least not anyone on earth.

Got a secret? Tell Lulin. It won't react to it either and maybe that's not such a bad thing.
