Russian astronomers discover new huge comet
Moscow (Voice of Russia) Jan 14, 2013
Last year, Russian astronomers Vitaly Nevsky and Artyom Novichonok discovered a new gigantic comet that is currently approaching Earth. The ISON comet, which is expected to become brighter than the full moon, will be visible to the naked eye by late 2013. The astronomers say that given the comet's unique orbit, its origin may be the Oort Cloud, a cluster of frozen rocks and ices surrounding the solar system, located almost a light-year from the Sun. The comet is currently passing outside Jup ... read more
