Comet ISON Is Inside The Orbit Of Earth
c2012_s1_2013_11_06dp(1)

Comet ISON has almost completed its journey from the Oort Cloud to Sun’s photosphere and is now inside the orbit of Earth. On November 28, 2013 Comet ISON will fly only 1 million kilometers (2.7 solar radii) above Sun’s surface, through temperature about 5000 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to vaporize much of the dust and rock on ISON’s surface. ISON’s growing dust tail now stretches nearly half a degree or a full moon’s diameter.

The comet will be moving very fast, about 400 km/s at perihelion and nobody can tell for sure what to expect but one thing is sure – it will be really, really interesting time for all astronomy lovers.

Recent observations show a second ion or gas tail feature emerging from the comet’s coma.

The overall magnitude of the comet has been slowly but steadily rising. For now it is estimated as bright as 8.0. Seiichi Yoshida predicts another half magnitude brightening over the next few days.

There are still three most possible scenarios for Comet ISON’s interaction with Sun. It could disintegrate well before perihelion, just like C/1999 S4 LINEAR in 2000 or Elenin in 2011. It could disintegrate during the perihelion or it could survive as some others before like Lovejoy or McNaught. Time will tell.

More Than 4000 Offline In Warrnambool Power Outage – Australia
 Power Outage Alert

MORE than 4000 south-west customers lost power this morning due to an issue during planned Powercor maintenance work.

The planned outage at Rowley Street was meant to put 200 East Warrnambool customers offline, including Moore Street residents.

Almost 400 customers in the Allansford, Mepunga and Naringal district were also offline, as well as homes in Terang, Cudgee and Panmure.

At 10.45am supply was restored to all but 1752 of the affected Warrnambool customers.

Powercor has not outlined a full restoration time.
