Approaching comet may be brightest in a century


A newly-discovered comet looks likely to blaze brightly in our skies late next year. Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), is due to come within 0.012 astronomical units (AU) of the sun - just 1.1 million miles - on 29 November 2013. How brightly it will shine is still hard to determine, as there's a chance it will just boil away completely, as comet Elenin did last year.

If it doesn't though, it could be brighter than any comet seen in the last hundred years - brighter than the full moon. If so, it should be visible with the naked eye for about two months, even during the daylight.
