Comet C2010 X1 Elanin to pass almost in front of the Pleiades 22 Nov 2011

My astronomy Software of choice, TheSky 6 Pro, has the ability to display transient astronomical phenomenon, such as comets. By loading the latest elements for Comet Elanin, I have discovered that on the evening of November 22, 2011, the comet will pass nearly in front of the famous Pleiades star cluster. This may be an opportunity for some excellent astroimaging. Please click on the image to read the particulars.
