#ManyCulturesOneSky with SkyWatcher Leo T, a RadioACTive volunteer-contributor who shares his love for the night sky and cultural tales of the constellations during #PunkRockFarmerFridays. Tonight: a look at the new incoming comet...don't worry, it'll be close at 28 million miles away on February 1st. It's a beautiful green streak that is hopefully going to be visible in the morning of the 12th in the northeast above the Moab rim, or the Wasatch Front in the twinkly constellation, Corona Borealis! It will get brighter as we move toward February.

Prior to Red Butte, he owned and operated a bicycle-based garden maintenance and design service in Berkeley, CA for nearly a decade. His passion is finding places for fruiting trees and shrubs in an otherwise ornamental garden, and then bending them to his will through careful direction and pruning. He has a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.
