Giant comet zooming toward the sun is largest ever seen

Giant comet heading towards sunThis is a big one.

A giant comet – which scientists say is arguably the largest comet discovered in modern times – is on its way toward the sun and will make its closest approach to Earth in 2031.

"We have the privilege of having discovered perhaps the largest comet ever seen – or at least larger than any well-studied one – and caught it early enough for people to watch it evolve as it approaches and warms up," said University of Pennsylvania astronomer Gary Bernstein, a co-discoverer of the object.

It is the most distant comet to be discovered on its incoming path, giving us years to watch it evolve as it approaches the sun, the National Science Foundation said.

The comet is also an infrequent visitor to our neck of the woods: "It has not visited the solar system in more than 3 million years," Bernstein said in a statement.
