Comet Ison

It might be worth a look if it survives the corona!

Comet ISON could well be the brightest and most spectacular comet for a generation. It should appear above the eastern horizon from December 2013 as a glorious streak across the sky. ISON has been travelling towards the sun for ten thousand years and will make only one orbit through its corona before disappearing off into the outer solar system

I'm not going to look.  The devil put that there to make us thing the universe is older than 6000 years. ;)
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
