It is Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), simply dubbed Comet ISON in the media and was discovered on the 21st day of September, 2012 “beyond the orbit of Jupiter, and almost immediately created a sensation in the astronomical community. The comet holds the promise of becoming so bright that it may be visible in the daytime sky.”

At its closest to the sun, Comet ISON will be just 1.8 million kilometers from the solar surface, or just over one million miles. This is extremely close, and some comets that pass that close do not survive the approach, breaking up and melting into the solar wind instead.

There are interesting facts about Comet ISON that must not escape the student of nature. Find out!

as together, we say a resounding HAPPY NEW YEAR to ourselves, while reveling in parties especially with mouthfuls of morsels and vegetabled beef.

Today, tomorrow and the quick days that follow would be used to paint brightly coloured walls, as hopes and resolutions for changes in the pregnant year, 2013. It is pregnant from the coitus of ‘2012 and us’ but what manner of child would be delivered is yet a mystery.

Let us sing and please, do let us merry but we our eyes need be opened to the goings-on in the moment.

As we celebrate the entry of a new year, there are those who really do not care what the time says. While some celebrate with laughter, there are those who are in pains.
