@feonixrift @jonny @rysiek I'm not condoning piracy, but given that just looking up a book at my local library involves a large number of 3d party trackers, I've been kind of radicalized.

A Once in a Lifetime Event........ Comet Leonard

Beginning Dec. 14, the comet will be viewable in the night sky and for a few days, no instruments will be needed to see it. Lunsford said it will appear next to Venus, and viewers will notice the comet in between the horizon and Venus right after sunset on Dec. 17. In the early hours of Dec. 18, Leonard will be 2.6 million miles away from Venus.
