Comet Ison

Hey all you star-gazers out there.  Don’t miss out on what could be one of the biggest astronomical events of the year!  Comet Ison (C/2012 S1) is approaching the inner Solar System and should become visible to the naked eye later this month and throughout all of next month.  If predictions are right, the comet could be as bright as the full moon on closest approach to the Sun!  Of course, no one knows for sure how Ison will perform, but you won’t want to miss out if predictions are true.  The TAA will be following Ison’s progress and hopes to hold a special “Comet Ison” party and observing event at the Arthur Pursell Observatory sometime in November.  Check our website for details..
