COMET ISON UPDATE: Reports of naked-eye sightings of Comet ISON are coming in from around the world. Experienced observers put the comet's magntitude at +5.5 on Nov. 16th. This means it is now fully 10 times brighter than it was only three days ago before the outburst. To the naked eye, ISON appears as a faint smudge of pale green light low in the pre-dawn sky. The tail is so long, he couldn't fit the whole thing in the field of view. It's 8 million kilometers behind the comet's nucleus.

A little wisdom from Calvin + Hobbes "If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently."
