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.

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.
