Earth is about to have two comets make very close approaches. 252 Linear and BA 14. As usual the southern hemisphere gets the best view. To make things more interesting, this light curve from
Seichi Yoshida, indicates 252 Linear is about 4 mag. brighter than predicted. http://aerith.net/comet/catalog/0252P/2016-mag.gif
