If the news has got you down, look up!
We have another comet approaching the sun. This one is Comet ATLAS (C/2019 Y4) has a gaseous comma that is currently about ½ the size of the sun. Here is a link from SpaceWeather.com.
It’s also worth pointing out that Venus is conjunct the Pleiades. Here is another picture from SpaceWeather.com that shows the Moon, Venus and the Pleiades in a triangle on Saturday night.
