Comets and Human Relations
Rob Simbeck is a renaissance man (officially an author and freelance writer), so naturally he's been observing the night sky for many years. In today's 365 Days of Astronomy podcast, he talks about an incident in a Nashville parking lot in March 1997 during which the comet Hale-Bopp shed more than its faint light could be expected to on the problems of human relations. Listen carefully and you'll hear some of Rob's acoustic guitar noodling, I mean improvisations in the background.
