In 2013 comet ISON predicted to shine brighter than the full moon as it sweeps past Earth. Comet ISON, is due to fly within 1.9 million km from the center of the sun on November 28, 2013. As the comet approaches, heat from the sun will vaporize ices in ISON body, creating what could be a spectacular tail that is visible in Earth’s night sky without telescopes.
Stargazers from Australia and Philippines witnessed the brilliant flash from the cosmic collision on planet Jupiter. The impact was either a comet or an asteroid.
