LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The comet PANSTARRS will be visible in the western sky for a short time after sunset on Saturday and Sunday.

Cloud cover will prevent the comet from being visible on Friday Night, but there will likely be good visibility for the following two days. The comet will rise higher in the sky each night, and it will be at its brightest on Sunday directly after sunset, though it will still only be visible for about an hour.

An even brighter comet, ISON, is expected to appear in the sky in November of this year.
