ISON (C/2012 S1) comet to create meteor shower

ISON (C/2012 S1) comet is approaching the Earth. The brightness of the comet can soon achieve the brightness of the full moon. When flying past our planet, the celestial body will leave a large number of particles. It will be possible to observe particles in almost every corner of the world.

ISON comet will near Earth in December 2013, when scientists can obtain new data on the nature of comets. The comet was discovered in September 2012 by astronomers Artyom Novichonok and Vitaly Nevsky of the observatory in Kislovodsk.

C/2012 S1 will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 28 November 2013 at a distance of 0.012 AU (1,800,000 km; 1,100,000 mi) from the center point of the Sun. Accounting for the solar radius of 695,500 km (432,200 mi), C/2012 S1 will pass approximately 1,100,000 km (680,000 mi) above the Sun's surface. Its trajectory is nearly parabolic, which suggests that it may be a dynamically new comet coming freshly from the Oort cloud. On its closest approach, C/2012 S1 will pass about 0.0724 AU (10,830,000 km; 6,730,000 mi) from Mars on 1 October 2013, and it will pass about 0.429 AU (64,200,000 km; 39,900,000 mi) from Earth on 26 December 2013

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
