CJRO News January 23 to January 29, 2023

Hello, bonjour, and welcome to CJRO News on CJRO Radio. I’m Candice Vetter, reporting from Embrun.

Don’t forget to try to see the new comet. It is visible with binoculars and may brighten enough to be seen with the naked eye in the next week or so. It is in the north sky most of the night between the Big Dipper and Little Dipper. For more information about the comet, its brilliant green colour, and where to find it, see Gary Boyle’s column on our website, or visit
