APOD: Comet ISON Approaches (2013 Oct 07) Image Credit & Copyright: Damian Peach http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131007.html Explanation: How impressive will Comet ISON become? No one is sure, but unfortunately, as the comet approaches the inner Solar System, it is brightening more slowly than many early predictions. Pictured above, Comet ISON is seen about two weeks ago as it continued to develop a tail. Last week the comet passed relatively close to Mars, and was directly imaged by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. When Comet ISON dives to within a few solar radii of the Sun's surface in late November, it may become brighter than the Moon and sport a long and flowing tail -- or it may appear somewhat less spectacular. Either way, sky enthusiasts hope that whatever comet parts survive will put on quite an impressive show, as viewed from Earth, through at least the rest of the year. http://www.damianpeach.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131007 #APOD

APOD: Moon or Frying Pan? (2013 Apr 01) Images Credit: Frying Pan (Copyrighted): Christopher Jonassen; Moon: NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130401.html Explanation: Which is which? Of the two images shown above, one is a moon in our Solar System, while the other is the bottom of frying pan. We are not making this up -- can you tell a pan from a planetoid? Think you got it? To find the answer click here. OK, but there are more! That's right: you, your family, friends, neighbors, and local elected officials can all play "Moon or Frying Pan" with these other image pairs, too. As everyone knows, the fundamental underlying reason why moons and frying pans appear similar is -- OK, we at APOD aren't sure either. And if you've been fooled, don't fret -- just remember that it's OK because today is April Fool's Day. http://www.christopherjonassen.com/ Starship Asterisk* Quiz • Moon or Frying Pan? http://asterisk.apod.com/viewtopic.php?t=30890 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130401 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0401
