Will #comet #ISON survive or meet a fiery death when it whips around the sun Thursday? Hangout with us tomorrow from 1-3:30 p.m. EST for live coverage of the cosmic event.
 
The ultimate battle of fire and ice! Who will win, the sun or Comet #ISON

Join #NASA as we follow the journey of Comet ISON as it slingshots around the sun. 

Will the awesome gravity and energy of the sun break up this cosmic ball of ice and rock? Will it break up? Or will it pass the sun intact to put on a dazzling show in the December sky? 

Watch as NASA solar physicists track the comet LIVE from the mission control for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory,@NASA_SDO, during #ISON’s closest approach to the sun. 

We'll also be joined by comet scientists joining from Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, where the solar telescope will be observing ISON and by science writer Phil Plait.

NASA scientists will answer your questions LIVE on air here on Google+, in the YouTube comments section during the live broadcast, or via Twitter using #ISON and #askNASA.

The participants in this Hangout include:

• C. Alex Young, Solar Physicist, Associate Director for Science in the Heliophysics Science Division and co-founder of The Sun Today - NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.,

• W. Dean Pesnell, Solar Physicist and Project Scientist for the Solar Dynamics Observatory - NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.,

• Karl Battams, Comet Scientist for the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC, and solar spacecraft lead for NASA's Comet ISON Observing Campaign, joining from Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, where the solar telescope will be observing ISON. 

• Phil Plait, writes Slate's 'Bad Astronomy' blog and is an astronomer, science evangelizer, and author of the books "Bad Astronomy" and "Death from the Skies!"

Legal como a foto fora de escala pode confundir algumas pessoas sobre o que está exatamente acontecendo.

En tout c'est une belle et excellente nouvelle de partage pour une élevation sublime de la connaissance de notre univers.

Please share a detailed blog after the session
 
I can't wait this is going too be great too see
 
Для моих друзей это сообщение возможно даже не интересно, если мне и моим друзьям Наса не даст ответ на мой вопрос, можно ли принимать серьйозно все наработанные теории астрофизиков по вселеной?, которые не имели научной базы на которую они могли бы сослаться. То же самое произошло и с бозоном хиггинса, как нагло можно так врать?  Эта комета при подлёте к Солнцу испарится.

I want to watch this, but it says I don't have access. HOW do I get access???
 
But ISON is not ice, it is a huge rock.
 
Its odds look dim, but I'd still like to root for the little guy... Go Ison! :)
 
What are the Vegas odds on the comet. We will see tomorrow!
 
I wish this was happening at a more appropriate time for us Aussies but I think it's worth the late night
 
Watch for it. It rises in the east about 1:30 eastern time. Check out the skywalk app or another astronomy app to get precise times!!
 
What is the equivalent time in GMT +08:00?
 
The actual event itself shows the time locally, so just look at that wherever you are in the world... 18:00 in the UK
 
Will ISON be visible for Christmas? -Clint 
 
thankyou, nasa ,  for sharing, thought the technical difficulties with the microphone was funny,, you all did a good job and I appreciate your efforts, for the joe public.
