Images from the Hubble Space Telescope have given astrono-
mers the first glimpses of a new visitor to our solar system. A
previously uncharted comet is approaching from outside the orbit
of Pluto and may even become visible from Earth within the next
few years.

"If you thought Hailey's Comet was impressive, this one might
be even better," says Marjorie Serway, who discovered the object.
"It's too early to tell much - we're just now starting to pick it
up. But a lot of the readings we're getting are heavily into the red
scale. We don't know whether that's because the light is
refracting through some sort of cloud between the comet and
Earth, or because the comet itself is reflecting red light, like Mars,
or even producing its own red light, like the star Sirius. That latter
possibility is quite unlikely, of course. We've never seen a
genuinely luminous comet, just reflective ones. But preliminary
data, while sketchy, may indicate that this particular stellar object
is actually combusting."

Serway's Comet is not without its detractors, of course. Dr.
Xavier Filho, at the Mount Palomar Observatory, doubts whether
the object is even a comet at all. "I've seen [Serway's] data, and
it's thin. I've seen the images, and they're inconclusive. I think
what we have here is a woman who very much wants her name
on a stellar object and who has too much trust in the Hubbie. It
may be a comet; it may not be. But if it is, I'm crediting her only
with some good guesswork. As for the notion that it is luminous-

*Farkas eyes the sky as he steps outside of his vehicle, the radio just announcing the comet.

"Anthelios..."

*He hurries towards the Caern, not paying any attention to anyone in his surroundings.
"I can already tell. Looks like this is gonna be one hell of a party!"
