I’m looking forward to the premier of the PBS special on Comet ISON. The show premieres Wednesday, November 20th. Check your local listings for Comet Encounter.
And then, don’t forget to go outside at night now until the day before Thanksgiving. If you have a good pair of binoculars and are at a dark site, look to the East during early morning. November 28th may be the end for Comet ISON. No one knows if it will survive it’s close encounter (perihelion) with the sun at that point. It will either break up after the 28th or keep on glowing and become visible to the naked eye. I really hope the latter happens. If it does, prepare for a show in early December.
