SF News – Russian scientists have recently discovered a comet that is passing by our plant and will be visible in 2013 with naked eyes over the western horizon. The comment, called ISON, is expected to shine up to 15 times the moon depending on how big its tail will get when it gets closer to the sun.
While the scientists hesitate to predict its behavior, but the positioning of ISON comet at present indicates that it will be well visible over India in 2013. It will keep a two thousand mile distance from the sun.
Due to the brightness expected, the comet will be visible even during day time. If so, ISON will be the brightest comet ever discovered by scientists during the last century. But some scientists speculate that the trip by our planet may be ISON’S last as it may plunge into the sun due to its unpredictable path.
ISON is a two mile wide body made out of rocks and ice. It is currently passing by Saturn, and is gaining speed. It is becoming brighter day by day as it nears our planet.
