NASA's Near Earth Objects program is one group that tracks object that pass near the Earth (you might have expected that from the name).

Your left eye is watery and keeps draining because it might be infected with something such as pink eye. It might also be happening due to dry eyes or a clogged tear duct.


There are several comets visible from earth each year with the use of strong binoculars or a telescope, but there are currently no large "naked eye" comets in our immediate future. That can change rapidly, though, new comets are being discovered all the time.


Yes, when they are close enough to Earth. A few years ago Hale-Bopp was spectacular.


In most years several comets are visible, though most of them are faint enough you have to be actively looking for them and have a telescope. Comets bright enough to be readily visible with the naked eye from a light-polluted urban area are less common.


This is written on September 6, 2012. At present, there are no comets visible with the naked eye, but there are a number of comets that are visible with even a modest telescope. The brightest is currently 96P/Machholz.

There is no set number, because new comets are discovered all the time. Not all comets that are discovered will be visible with the naked eye.


That will depend on when you make the trip. There are MANY comets detected each year, although only a few become bright enough to be seen with the naked eye, and very few are bright enough to be seen with the naked eye from bright city lights. We typically detect comets when they are about a year out from the Sun, although a flurry of smaller "Sun-diving" comets were detected only hours before they fell into the Sun in December, 2010.


it keeps your eye inside your body


It keeps the eye in place and protects it.


There are comets all the time, sometimes we can see them with the naked eye.


Certainly some can be seen with the naked eye.


There's a web site for tracking comets; I'll put a link in the related links section. However, as of July 10 2012 (the date of this writing), I don't think there are any comets bright enough to be visible to the naked eye; comets are dimmer (have a lower surface brightness) than their magnitude indicates, and none of those currently listed are anywhere near naked-eye magnitudes. C/2011 L4 has a good possibility of being a naked-eye comet next year, but it's currently still down around 12th magnitude.


The phrase 'heavenly bodies' refers to the stars, planets, moons, comets, and other astronomical objects visible from Earth, generally referring to those that are visible with the naked eye.


Several comets are observed every year. Not all of them are spectacular, or can even be seen with the naked eye, so the exact answer is not known.


some comets can be seen with a naked-eye meaning you can see it with your own eye without any telescope.. but some you may need those big telescopes because they arent very bright.


When a girl you like tries to make eye contact and keeps smiling, it means she is being friendly and might be interested in you too.


Something might get in your eye. You might experience pain depending on the thing you get in your eye. It might burn your eye or it might cut your eye.


It acts in the exact same way it would for our eyes: keeps it moist from drying out and keeps the eye lubricated so it can move in its socket. Inside the eye, fluids help keep the shape of the eye like it should be (round).


When your guinea pig tilts its head to one side it might have a eye or ear infection.


It helps the eye stay in place and keeps it connected to the socket. :)


As of October 12, 2014 there are no comets visible to the naked eye from Earth. There are several visible to telescopes, and a couple that are visible in binoculars, if you know where to look. A good website to go to if you want to know about currently visible comets is cometchasing.skyhound.com. The site is updated with names, approximate positions, and brightness; they even give some idea of what it will take (in terms of how large a telescope you need) to see it. Once you know the names of the comets that might be visible, you can check for further information on them so that you know exactly where to look on any given night.


Our galaxy is in the spiral category, That means that it is like a hurricane, gas, dust, comets, planets, and other things all orbit a hole in the middle(a "eye"). And it is called the Milky Way Galaxy.


No because the cornea helps the eye to focus on objects and keeps dust and germs out of the eye.


it means that u r winking ur left eye.
