star of Bethlehem in recent times,
to premonitions of some sort of
doom. Premonitions aside, if
the tail formation proceeds as
hopefully expected, it should be a
spectacular entrance into 1974.
Scientists estimate that comet
Kohoutek is on a clearly parabolic
orbit that will not bring it back for
at least ten thousand years. Look
closely then, it could be the last
unmolested comet in this century.
