By Alice Robinson
Daily Staff Reporter
In January, novice star gazer Yuji
Hyakatuke was peering through his bin-
oculars when he spotted what looked
like a fuzzy ball in the distance.
Luckily, he decided to investigate.
This week, the newly discovered
comet will be whizzing by Earth at
93,000 mph.
The "dirty snowball," as comets are
often referred, will be visible this week to
Michigan residents as it orbits the sun.
Last night, Comet Hyakutake came
within an amazing 9.5 million miles
from Earth, the closest encounter the
Earth has had with a comet in the past
10 years.
In the beginning of April, the comet
will be on a path toward the sun, which
will provide optimal chances for view-
ing.
This week the comet can also be seen
from Europe, Japan and Canada.
The traditional perception of comets
may not be entirely accurate, said
Micheal Combia research scientist with
the University's Space Physics Research
Laboratory.
"(It's) sort of a common misconcep-
tion that comets are sort of like meteors
that streak through the sky. If you just
look over in the sky it looks like it's
sitting there," he said.
Combi is working with a group of
scientists using the Hubble Telescope

to study the comet's surface. The re-
search will take place April 3-4.
The scientists will be observing water
photochemistry on the comet using tele-
scopes on the ground as well as Hubble.
Although the comet is the brightest
to pass by since Comet West 20 years
ago, cloudy skies may impede viewing.
"It looks a little bit brighter than the
Big Dipper- so ifyou can't seethe Big
Dipper you can't see the comet," said
Engineering Prof. Andrew Nagy.
Since the discovery, scientists have
been busy trying to figure out if the
comet has been here before. They esti-
mate that it was probably here thou.
sands of years ago. "The best calcula-
tion is that it's period is about 18,000
years," Combi said.
The comet should be visible tonight
and tomorrow night, weather permit
ting. "If you could see it on Tuesday it
would be very close to the north star,"
Combi said.
The last time this much excitement
surrounded a comet was in 1986, when
Halley's comet appeared briefly. Combi
said H-yakutake equals Halley in bright
ness but will pass closer to the earth
than Halley did.
The monumental discovery was thrill-
ing to astronomers, said Engineering
Prof. Tamas Gombosi. "It's the same as
finding another star ... and it's more
exciting. It's much closer to us," he
said.

Detroit Newspapers
managers questioned

DETROIT (AP)-- Pickets, protests,
publishing, replacement workers and
boycotts have failed to bring an end to
the Detroit newspaper strike.
Now it's the lawyers' turn.
The focus of the eight-month strike
turns to a federal hearing room today
when a trial begins to determine if man-
agement negotiated unfairly with the
six striking unions.
An administrative law judge will hear
arguments over an unfair labor practice
complaint that the National Labor Re-
lations Board's regional director issued
in August against The Detroit News,
the Detroit Free Press and their joint
business and production agency, De-
troit Newspapers Inc.
The trial is unlikely to bring a quick
resolution to the strike, however. A
final ruling could be years away if ei-
ther side appeals to the full NLRB and

the federal courts, as expected.
The consolidated complaint in-
volves several union allegations of
unfair bargaining in violation of fed-
eral labor law, including that man-
agement:
Reneged on a May agreement to
bargain jointly with all six unions on
economic issues.
Improperly imposed a merit pay
plan on News employees before nego-
tiations had reached an impasse.
Improperly implemented a pro-
posal that forced News reporters to ap-
pear on a local television news show
without extra pay.
Failed to provide the Newspaper
Guild of Detroit Local 22 with re-
quested information about plans to
pay News employees higher salaries
in lieu of overtime and to provide
merit pay.
