The year 2017 is a good time to sight see what's beyond the skies. A rare comet will pass by January 14, so grab your telescopes or binoculars as it will pass only every 1,000 years.

Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object (NEO) Studies at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a press release: "[The comet] has a good chance of becoming visible through a good pair of binoculars, although we can't be sure because a comet's brightness is notoriously unpredictable."

The comet heads to the southern skies until its peak on Saturday until it passes earth's hemisphere to the outer regions of the galaxy. It was seen passing in the northern skies during the first week of January and is expected to glow on the 14th right before dawn.

People get to heads up on February 25 as well, when another comet will pass earth as predicted last month. However, 2016 WF9, as it is called will not be too near in the earth's atmosphere and is still unsure if it will be visible or not.

But, scientists concluded that 2016 WF9 is quite large enough: a kilometer or a half long, and very dark. It was discovered in the solar system on November 27, 2016.

Another amazing discovery is the collision of two stars that happened 1,800 years ago, and the light coming from the birth of a new star will be arriving earth on 2022. The new star, dubbed as the Boom Star, will burn brightly on the skies five years from now.

Dr. Matt Walhout, Dean for Research and Scholarship at Calvin College in Michigan is heard saying, "For the first time in history, parents will be able to point to a dark spot in the sky and say, 'Watch, kids, there's a star hiding in there, but soon it's going to light up." But it was Calvin College professor Larry Molnar and his students who made the predictions.

"It's a one-in-a-million chance that you can predict an explosion," Molnar said. "It's never been done before."
