You have a chance to see a comet pass over the Oklahoma sky this month.

Pan-STARRS is a newly discovered comet and is visible from the northern hemisphere.

Experts say it’s a rare glimpse as the comet won’t orbit around the sun for another 100 million years.

News Channel 4 Meteorologist Emily Sutton said comet viewing is possible until March 24.
