Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, also known as the “devil comet,” will be positioned close to the sun during the April 8 total solar eclipse. Some photographers also predict that the volcanic comet may be visible to the naked eye, especially if it blows its top before the big event, Report informs referring to Live Science.

The explosive “devil comet” could rear its green-tinged, hornless head during the total solar eclipse on April 8. The city-size comet, which is currently racing toward Earth, may show up in photos of the rare astronomical event. And if it erupts before totality — the phase of the eclipse when the sun is completely blocked — the comet could also be visible to the naked eye, one expert claims.
