Look, Up In The Sky!
It's A Bird,
It's A Plane,
It's A... Levy!

ARTHUR J. MAGIDA

Special to The Jewish News

avid Levy, an ama-
teur astronomer in
Tucson, Ariz., has
found and named a comet,
which can be seen with an
unaided eye in the skies over
Detroit for the next two
weeks.
Streaking across the
heavens at 50,000 to 60,000
miles an hour, Comet Levy
has a tail about 100,000
miles long. Three weeks ago,
the comet was about 40 mill-
ion miles from earth — the
closest that its parabolic or-
bit will ever take it to this
planet.
Near the end of
September, Comet Levy will
move out of the visible range
as it enters the southern
hemispheric skies. In the
meantime, it can be seen
right after sunset in the
southern sky, where it is
moving westward with the
constellation Sagittarius.
While the comet is dim, its
8.0 magnitude does make it
visible to the naked eye. The
comet can best be seen by go-
ing to a spot away from the
glare of city lights. A small
telescope or binoculars will
improve chances of spotting
the comet.
Levy discovered the comet
on May 20 while using a 16-
inch telescope near Tucson.
It is the sixth comet he has
discovered in the last four
years and the first that bears
only his name. Last year, for
instance, Levy and two other
astronomers, one in Japan
and the other in
Massachusetts, all in-
dependently discovered a
comet that now carries the
name Okazaki-Levy-
Rudenko.
Amateur astronomers
notify the International
Astronomical Union's Cen-
tral Bureau for
Astronomical Telegrams
upon sighting a new comet.
The Bureau then telegrams
details of the sightings to
major observatories around
the world, which confirm
that the comet was previous-
ly unknown. If so, the
heavenly body is named
after its discoverer. One
comet can be named for up to
three discoverers.
Comet Levy is one of
billions of comets in the

solar system. According to
Geoff Chester of the Nation-
al Air and Space Museum's
planetarium in Washington,
D.C., the comet is expected
to leave the solar system in
about 18 months. ❑

Exhibit Shows
Life In The
Warsaw Ghetto

New York (JTA) — The
latest exhibit at the New
York Jewish Museum, "A
Birthday Trip To Hell," ex-
plores an "ordinary" day in
the Warsaw Ghetto, filled
with the pictures of the daily
life of the ghetto's in-
habitants.
The 129 pictures were
taken by a German soldier
on a birthday outing. Heinz
Jost, an innkeeper from the
town of Langelensheim, was
serving in the German Army
in September 1941 near
Warsaw on the east bank of
the Vistula. His curiosity
was raised by the stacks of
bodies he saw outside the
ghetto walls, so Mr. Jost
spent his birthday walking
the streets of the ghetto,
snapping pictures of every-
thing he saw.
Mr. Jost kept the
photographs to himself until
the early 1980s, when he
gave his images of life in the
Warsaw Ghetto to the
editors of the German
periodical Der Stern. He died
shortly after.

Israel Excluded
From Advisory

Amsterdam (JTA) — The
Dutch government has
issued a travel advisory
against visiting most. Middle
Eastern countries, including
Iraq, Jordan, Syria, the
eastern part of Saudi
Arabia, Yemen and the Gulf
states except Oman.
However, as of now, no re-
strictions have been placed
on travel to Israel, Egypt,
the North African nations of
Morocco or Tunisia, or to
Greece.
Cancellations of trips to
Israel from Holland have
been made mainly by those
who were to visit Israel for
the first time and as mem-
bers of groups, but not by
those who visit Israel
regularly and individually.
