And braces for the inevitable 100's of threads claiming there's a UFO in the tail / alien attack / end of the world / alien virus.

Plus the occasional crop circle design with a comet shape in it (as soon as its warm enough for people to be out stomping crops in the UK. Its pretty cold here ATM).

No problem.. No worries, I am a miss dude aswell..!

There is plenty of easily accessible info on comet Ison and I shall be keeping me eyes peeled for any new reports and/or updates.

Lol yes I definitely agree with you there..! It will be interesting to see what happens when Ison arrives, as scientists do not fully understand the nature of these space rocks that come zooming in from outwith our solar system.

As for the doomsday sayers they can eat my space dust...

Excellent! If it`s true it will be the best birthday present I could wish for.
Unless it hits us that is....

Lol..! Wow well I'm sure it will be the best birthday present ever..!

And according to its current trajectory it does not look like it will hit us. Ison is much further a field, compared to the recent comet DA14 which passed us within a hairs breadth at 17,200 miles..! So methinks we should be ok

But never say never....

approaching Earth, passing closest to us on the day after Christmas, vaulting over our planet at a distance of 39.6 million miles (63.7 million km).

Not the standard "hopi blue star" that every comet gets called? Shocking.

Comet ISON, can't wait to see this in the skies....

Nothing like seeing something else outshining the moon, on the festive season when everyone else is in a frenzy celebration. It *comes like a thief in the night*, to steal them presents...

Ah hell... wheres my holy water, not gonna let this undead Nibiru rubbish rise so soon from the grave. back demon back... back into the pits of falsehood and deception you go!

Whats funny is how could a comet at Christmas have any actual religious relevance any way given that Christmas is NOT the time Jesus was supposed to have actually been born any way. Its just the date we happen to celebrate it on.

That being said, we had that comet a few years back that was visible here in the southern hemisphere for week or so like a big old silver gash in the evening and night sky. This one sounds like it'll be ALOT brighter, in which case good lord its gonna be interesting.

Hopefully we dont move into its tail... who knows what its got in it, dirty comets. Probably end up with some alien virus being seeded across the globe.

I really hope this little puppy gives us one hell of a light show like they originally thought it might...

It could be one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments for us !

"Where were you when comet Ison whizzed by ?"

No doomporn for the doomtards

After reading some about this comet and it's projected track. I think it'll make for a doozy of a sight across the night sky. It's path, far over the North Pole for 3 dimensional lines, should make for a sight for that aspect as well.

This object doesn't bother me as it'll never come close to us. 39 million kilometers the day after Christmas (one story I just read had stated) and far above us on plane, so the tail isn't something we'd have to worry about going through either. Nothing to worry about but just enjoy, IMO.

Having said that? That sucker is moving mighty fast and man didn't even know it existed before Sept 2012? Err.... that isn't a comfy thing to learn, IMO. How many more comets and asteroids are waiting to be discovered, I wonder?

It was only seen 6 months ago by my count? So that's the warning we may have or ..not have.. for a fair size object that isn't so sure to miss. Perhaps better technology is needed here.

Well shoot. Let me be the first to dust off Nostradamus...

Run of the comet

Now the doom popcorn can begin.

Been looking forward to this one for a while,Hopefully I can get a decent view of it with my scope and it stays intact to put on a good show. No doom involved with this either.

Great video of the comet from the OP.

When I first heard about ISON, it was in this article by redOrbit.

The very first sentence of the article immediately made me think of Revelation's wormwood, but since the naming convention for these things is not based on the location where they were discovered I just dismissed it as an odd coinkydink.

It's supposed to get really, really close to the sun - I hope that thing doesn't bust up and send random fragments flying ... wherever.

It needs to hurry up and get here already.

I totally agree with you here, more money does need to be invested
in finding and tacking possible dangers to the planet, apathy in this
regard could cost us precious time to at the very least try to avoid

I also hope this makes the spectacular show they are predicting,
it would be such a sight if it were brighter than the moon, i still
remember seeing halley's comet as a youngster, it was magnificent.

As an Astrophotographer, i cant wait for ISON to arrive. It will be my first comet capture!

posted on Feb, 25 2013 @ 04:58 AM
Just remembering the unpredictability of comet after the aproach to the sun... (lovejoy 16DEC2011)

And I'm worried about the silence around ISON size...

posted on Feb, 25 2013 @ 10:22 AM
Aaaaaamazing! Let's hope we don't have a month long overcast of clouds during it's traversal. That. Would. Suck.

On another note, if anybody is worried about the countless comets, asteroids and meteoroids that could threaten Earth, then I suggest purchasing a decent telescope to assist NASA, ESA, etc. and the amateur astronomers. We can never have enough.
