Marylanders may get a naked-eye look at a comet this month. Comet Lulin was discovered in 2007 by astronomers in China and Taiwan, and it has rounded the sun, headed our way. It's now low in the southwest before dawn, too dim to see without a telescope. But by Feb. 24 it should be faintly visible to the naked eye (and easy to see with binoculars) near Saturn, high in the southeast before midnight.
