I am always fascinated by the cosmos - the planets, stars, galaxies and comets. And, what is being called "The Comet Of The Century" is now appearing in our night sky. Check out the details.

According to an article for Space.com  by Joe Rao on huffingtonpost.com:

"Get ready for a stellar show. The much-anticipated Comet ISON is now visible to the naked eye according to reports from many observers.

Comet ISON — the potential "comet of the century" — has suddenly brightened in an outburst of activity with just two weeks to go before it literally grazes the surface of the sun.

In recent months, Comet ISON has repeatedly befuddled forecasters trying to anticipate just how bright it will ultimately become. But earlier this week, the comet's brightening trend again seemed to sputtering and stalling, but more recent observations suggest a sudden and radical upsurge in brightness."
