An icy volcanic comet, nicknamed the “Devil Comet”, erupted for the fourth time Tuesday (Nov. 14) as it races toward Earth.

The comet, officially called 12P/Pons-Brooks, violently blasted out ice and gas and created a glowing halo that resembles devil horns. This is the largest outburst yet for the Devil Comet, which at 18 miles (29 kilometers) wide is roughly three times the size of Mount Everest.
