Astronomers Gearing Up for Possible ‘Comet of the Century’

Astronomers are already getting set for the arrival of Comet ISON, which may become one of the brightest comets ever seen when it cruises through the inner solar system this fall.

NASA has brought together a small team of experts to organize an observing campaign for Comet ISON, which could potentially shine as brightly as the moon when it makes its closest pass by the sun in late November if the most optimistic scenarios play out.”

    Хотелось бы, чтобы оптимистический сценарий сбылся, и в ноябре зловещая красавица пролетела достаточно близко.
