The Arthur C. Clarke Centre says that Sri Lanka will be able to view the most powerful comet seen in this century.

 

Centre’s astrophysicist Professor Chandana Jayaratna said that this comet had been named as Comet ‘ayisone’.

 

The professor said further that this comet could be viewed at night and dawn in the eastern sky from 17th till 23rd this month.

 

The Hubble telescope has spotted an asteroid radiating six comet-like tails, making it resemble a "rotating lawn sprinkler".
