Comet ISON

I'm sure everyone knows about comet ISON and how huge it could be. The comet started it's 36+ hour journey around the sun a few hours ago. It had about a 40% chance of surviving its trip around the sun. Just as it started to circle the sun, the sun fired a massive (CME) *Coronal Mass Ejection* directly at it. Which is exactly what happened to comet Encke back in 07' which was also directly hit by a CME.

 

ISON still stands a great chance of making it around the sun but the chances of the sun hitting two comets in a row with direct CME's is almost inconceivable. It's as if the Sun know what it's doing.

 

Here is a picture of the CME and ISON

if ISON makes it, we are in for a show, It could be x5 brighter than the moon.

ISON is holding strong, it makes it's closest pass to the sun around 1:30 EST today. If it makes it we could expect something that could be x30 brighter than halley's comet

I know some people don't give a fuck but, if it survives and we get to see something brighter than the moon... that's.. that's something special.

So, about 1:44 PM it was going to make it's closest pass at, NASA TV waited and waited and it never came, the sun ate it up..

 

At roughly 7:14 tonight ISON came back into view again flying away from the sun. astronomers and scientists, are in disbelief. The comet is truly a miracle to say the least... Nobody really know whats going on right now..
