That's 2061.

Yeah................i'll only be 87 yrs old.

Whats your point.


Ha! I'll be a whipper-snapper of an 83-year old.
Should be interesting to watch Halley, provided I'll be able to find by glasses and zimmerframe that is...
All we need by then are a few techological enhancements to bring our naked eye limiting magnitide down to about mag9. That would be fun!

16?

Jaysus you are only a snapper.

How long before Hale-Bop comes our way again. I remember seeing that naked eye in the western skies. It was AMAZING. Two clearly visible tails......one blue(ish) white the other yellow.

Awesome sight.

We also have an annular eclipse completely visible in the late 2020's ....

so you reckon you'll still be around for that one old fella?

I should be comfortably just into my 70's ... as a precautionary measure, I may just hit the annular eclipse at the start of 2009. :D

I'm hanging on for the next pass of Hailey's comet.

That's 2061. We've all seen your photo. Which piece of the coffin interior do you plan in "hanging on" to Paul?

PRICELESS! :D :mrgreen:
