Nov 28 Comet ISON makes its closest approach to the Sun* [external link]

Nov 30 John Toland’s birthday

* The newly discovered comet ISON will make its closest approach to the Sun on Nov. 28. If the comet survives its encounter with the Sun, it could be one of the brightest comets in recent memory. Some astronomers estimate that it could even be bright enough to be seen during daylight hours. In October it will start to be visible to the naked eye and will continue to get brighter until November 28. If the comet survives, it will be visible in the early morning and early evening sky and could be nearly as bright as the full Moon. Some astronomers are calling it the “comet of the century”.
