    Comet ISON

    Not JJ related, but there is a really cool comet coming into view from anywhere on the planet. Almost visible to the naked eye. Should be by next week. If it survives a close encounter with the sun on Thanksgiving day, it's going to emerge as the comet of the century. It may even outshine the moon at it's brightest. If this kind of shit interests you too, check out "earthsky" on Facebook. They do a killer job of keeping up with comet ISON daily. Lots of great pics and help on where to look for it.

    Not good at posting links but here's the best I can do

    I have been following ISON also. Sun grazing comets are pretty amazing.

    Already has become visible to the Naked eye, last night it experienced a hell of a brightening event, its tail is massive and it is at a brightness level of +5.5 magnitude, which is equivalent to a dim star. It currently rises to the east slightly before dawn as a pale area of green in the sky. Get out binoculars and it becomes much more beautiful!

    Here's a link to a simulator that will show you where to look for it. Click the "Switch to Earth" button in the top left to see how it will look from your location.

    Crappy visibility in the a.m. here in Jersey. Haven't seen it yet. Crossing my fingers for a show in December!
