Comet Alert! Comet Alert!
Mark this on your calendar... Sometime before Christmas 2013 (okay, maybe it's a ways off but I think this could be worth preparing for), "A newly discovered comet could offer a once-in-a-civilization night-sky viewing opportunity that may not come again in our lifetime." Sounds kinda neat, huh?
They just recently discovered Comet ISON (C/2012 S1), and right now it's just a tiny spec out there. They dubbed it the "Christmas Miracle Comet," (I like that.) and say it could be as bright as a full moon. See, this sucker is gonna be an event and worthy of your planning efforts.
