Next November (yes, be patient) we are expecting a very bright comet to be visible in the northern hemisphere.

They just discovered it recently, and it’s making big news in our geeky astronomical circles.

This comet, comet ISON, could be as bright as the full moon. It will be going very near the sun, and it should develop a gorgeous tail. It will also come pretty close to the earth, but don’t worry; it’s not going to hit us.

 

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait! This is going to be too cool for words.
