Comet ISON has passed (the sun).  From its discovery through its solar  encounter, the icy body has informed the astronomy community and captured the imagination of a broader audience.  Join astronomers Pamela Gay and Karl Battams for a Hangout to put this solar denizen to rest.

Personal reflections on Comet ISON rounding the sun, with reference to its surprises, the predictive nature of astronomy, and the definition of dead.  I stoop to excerpts from two movies-- Groundhog Day and The Princess Bride--to provide perspective.
