APOD: Comet ISON Rising (2013 Nov 27) Video Credit & Copyright: Juan Carlos Casado (TWAN, Earth and Stars) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131127.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPNriMnVi5M Explanation: Will Comet ISON survive tomorrow's close encounter with the Sun? Approaching to within a solar diameter of the Sun's surface, the fate of one of the most unusual comets of modern times will finally be determined. The comet could shed a great amount of ice and dust into a developing tail -- or break apart completely. Unfortunately, the closer Comet ISON gets to the Sun, the harder it has been for conventional telescopes to see the brightening comet in the glare of the morning Sun. Pictured in the above short time lapse video, Comet ISON was captured rising over the Canary Islands just above the morning Sun a few days ago. If the comet's nucleus survives, the coma and the tails it sheds might well be visible rising ahead of the Sun in the next few days or weeks. Alternatively, satellites watching the Sun might document one of the larger comet disintegrations yet recorded. Stay tuned! http://twanight.org/casado http://starryearth.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131127 #APOD

The Hawfinch is a large, thickset and handsome finch with a massive parrot-like bill. It uses this to crack seeds and nuts, exerting a force of around 180 pounds per square inch. When disturbed, Hawfinches have a habit of perching on the very tops of trees, which is when you’re most likely to hear their sharp clicking call.
