The Green Comet Lulin is seen (upper-right) in the Constellation Virgo on Sunday morning, Feb. 22, 2009 from Tyler, Texas, in this 25 sec. time exposure. The Comet is visible to the unaided eye as a faint green patch, that will continue to brighten over the next several days, as it makes its closest approach to the Earth, 38 Million miles on Feb. 24, 2009. It is in the night sky between midnight and the dawn.
