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!"

The Draconid Meteor shower this year wasn't such a bad one here in Tucson, Arizona. The skies cleared up last night and gave me a good show of some shooting stars and deep space objects. I outlined the Draco constellation which was the radiant for the Meteor shower and pointed out some of the more recognizable objects. I took this 11-photo panoramic photo right near the entrance of Saguaro National Park in Gates Pass about 20 miles west of Tucson. I hope you enjoy my image as much as I did capturing it.
Sharing is appreciated!
