    Will Comet ISON Hit the Earth?

    by Tony Darnell

    When we first started thinking about content for our blog, one of the first things we did was a Google search on 'Comet ISON'. Over and over again, the question of whether Comet ISON would hit the Earth came up.

    So we thought it would be a good idea to answer that question right off the bat, and I agreed to make a video about it.

    For those who are familiar with the night sky, you already know the answer because you've already looked at the projected trajectory of ISON and read many blog posts about it. For you guys, I don't think it comes as any surprise when I say the short answer to the question of 'Will ISON hit us?' is no.

    But c'mon, don't you want to know why?

    So please watch the video and let me know what you think!  Comment on YouTube, Google+ or send me a Tweet @DeepAstronomy!
