    Nice meeting tonight.  Weather was great and we went outside with a telescope to view Venus in it’s gibbous stage and the ISS flew overhead.

    Two items came up at our meeting tonight regarding comets.  If you have any other websites or information to share, let me know so we can post it for others.

     

     

     

     

    One is a Comet ISON 3D Model.  I went in and played with this a bit when I came home, check it out and see where the comet is located within our solar system.

     

     

    The other item was Comet C/2012 x1 which seems to have had an outburst, similar to Comet Holmes in 2007.
