Manx name for no-tail comet

POSTED yesterday at 7:08 am

Salute to the rock from space! A new class of celestial body has been named after the Isle of Man by its discoverers. A team from the University of Hawaii spotted a dark, rocky asteroid in an orbit around the sun that had a stubby tail made of dust. C/2014 S3 was spotted 18 months ago by the Pan-STARRS telescope, and researchers were struck by its lack of a bright tail. Karen Meech from the university says they were faced with calling it a 'potentially dead comet' until one of her team nicknamed it a 'Manx comet' after the tailless cat.

Organisers say itll now take place at 1pm next Sunday, May 8, at the Laxey Fire Station.
