A fascinating introduction to the recently discovered Comet Hale-Bopp that will soon burst onto the celestial scene. The comet will be one of the most-studied and perhaps brightest. It arrives on the heels of other recent comets in the year of the comet. Hockeys book fills the long-standing demand for a guidebook that helps everyone gripped by comet-fever appreciate this spectacular event.

It is written in a lucid style for a non-technical readership. Biographical details and first-person quotes from Alan Hale and Thomas Bopp, among others, humanize the science behind the comet and capture the feel of what could well-be the astronomical event of the decade.

The book provides the reader with charts and tables to locate and observe the comet. Hockey tells the story of the comets discovery, astronomers reaction to it, and their preparation for its arrival. It also discusses other famous comets, including Comet Halley, Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 and Comet Hyakutake, and their significance.
