Comet ZTF is flying by at the moment. It's supposed to be viewable with the naked eye, but there's no chance of that in Edinburgh's light polluted skies. It's not going to be a typical comet with a long tail as it's orbit isn't close enough to the sun, so it's only a smudge. The reason there's a lot talk about this comet is that it gets pretty close to earth, hence why we might see it unaided.
