Prepare for a Show in the Sky!

Get your binoculars and cameras ready for next year's show. A very bright comet might be seen even during daytime. I remember watching the Hale-Bopp with very simple binoculars in 1996 - maybe many of you remember that too. And don't worry, if you live down under, you will have your own bright comet next year too! http://www.oneminuteastronomer.com/6713/c2012-s1-ison/ By the way, the word comes from the Greek Kometes, which means Long Haired Star.. Let's see if we see the long hair or tail next year.. Well, my friends, what do you know about comets??

Hi, Tony - well, we know that many comets have fallen to the earth but we also know that the book of Revelation is very symbolic, so maybe better do some research.. You can go to jw.org and scroll down a bit to the online library and use the search box. And why not start a discussion and see what people think?

Excellent! i love a bit of star gazing and i was totally unaware of next years visit. Hopefully all this 2012 end of the world nonsense will not come to pass so we can enjoy the spectacle. I do remember Hale-bopp and also Halleys comet and another that i forget the name of. Perhaps we can call the new comet "Mylotia 11" for future conversational purposes!

Perhaps the astronomers come up with an easier nickname than the comet was called in the article.. I believe we don't need to worry about the end of the world, as the Bible says [b]"Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever."[/b] Ecclesiastes 1:4 (New International Version) Only the wicked will be taken away, as Psalm 37 tells us. And no human being knows exactly when it happens, even though we know it is near and we need to be prepare so that we can survive. Our friend 1hopefulman has written some articles about prophecies that actually have been fulfilled already and in exact detail. Let's look forward to many comets in the future..
