COMET ISON NEWS UPDATE: SUN FLYBY, NASA REPORT — Thursday, Nov. 28, 1-3:30 p.m. EST Nasa Solar Physicist track the Comet ISON live in the perihelion – the point when it is closest to the sun.
This is once in lifetime event because comets are so rare. this Comet Ison is not sure will survive because there is chance that the suns gravitational force will break it. If it doesn’t break up, ISON will be visible near the horizon in early December.
Like all comets, ISON’s nucleus is a sooty lump of rock and ice (mainly frozen water, but with carbon dioxide, methane, ammonia and other compounds too) a few kilometers across. This comet should be referred to as Comet C/2012 S1, but it is already universally called Comet ISON in the media.
Today, the ultimate battle of Fire vs. Ice.!will the Comet Ison Brake? However as it gets closer to the Sun, solar heat brings a comet to life, warming the frigid surface of the comet’s nucleus, melting and vaporizing ancient ice. Source and Image: NASA
