First of all, incase you didn’t know, comets are huge balls of ice and rock. This particular comet officially named 2012 S1 but nicknamed Silver Surfer is 2 miles wide and is currently passing Saturn. The great news is, despite the title of this article which I carefully created to f*ck with you, the comet is NOT going to hit earth, but it will get very close. In fact, it will be so close that some scientist believe it will be brighter than a full moon, potentially being one of the brightest comets in history. Unfortunately for all you Mayan apocalypse lovers, this comet isn’t going to end the world. It will however create quite a show in the sky from November 2013 to January 2014.
I’ll be following this comet and I’ll be sure to let you know more about it and when to look up. Make sure to tell all your friends about this because this kind of stuff doesn’t happen often. In fact, the last time it happened was in 1680 (lol), so do your friends and I a favor and share this article on Facebook and Twitter so they don’t miss a historical, once in a lifetime light show in the sky.
