(KSL News) An enormous exploding comet is giving Utah quite the show.
This is Comet Holmes. It was barely noticeable a few weeks ago, but Oct. 23 it exploded to the size of Jupiter.
Now its gas and dust cloud is as large as the sun.
Experts aren't sure how long Holmes will be around but say it could be in the sky for weeks or even months. Holmes is in the constellation Perseus, easily seen in the northeast after dusk.
