I'm a reporter at the Chicago Tribune, and I'm working on a story for Tuesday's (Nov. 6) paper on Comet 17P/Holmes, which brightened over the past few weeks and is now visible to the naked eye in the northeast sky. I'm hoping to speak with a few local astronomers (professional or amateur) about the comet. Feel free to contact me by phone or email at 312-222-4737 (work); 617-676-7778 (cell); or firstname.lastname@example.org.

It was certainly my pleasure in discussing Comet Holmes with you and sharing my observational experience following the comet after it was first announced to the astronomical world on the 24th of October. This visitor was quite the surprise for not only Chicago astronomers, but really...the entire world. I never even heard of it until it flared up...and it loves to have it's picture taken.
I anticipate the Tribune piece and appreciate your time to register as a Chicago Astronomer.
