NASA Solar System Ambassador Tom Murdic will be speaking about this celestial phenomenon and if it is truly the comet of the century.
Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) was discovered in September 2012 and is already being talked about as “The Comet of the Century.” It is a sun-grazing comet, which means it will pass very close to our sun on its orbit. By November, ISON might be bright enough to see in broad daylight. Tom will update us on how Comet ISON is doing after grazing the sun and what we can expect to see in November and December with the naked eye and with equipment.
