C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS) IS COMING' is a project with students from BA Fine Art at the University of Ulster and Armagh Observatory, using the Human Orrery at the observatory to celebrate the arrival of the comet PAN-STARRS. This comet, just discovered by the PANSTARRS telescope in Hawaii, in June 2011, may well be visible to the naked eye or with binoculars by March as it nears earth on its orbit around the sun. Students celebrated its arrival by making models of the planets and the comet to delineate their orbits. A huge thanks to all at Armagh Observatory
