Comet ISON and All Things Astronomy

Wednesday, 2 October 2013 | A Public Affair

With the government shutdown, it’s likely that we will not have access to NASA’s website today. However on Wednesday October 2nd, our host Tim Hansel was joined by James Lattis, who is the director of the UW Space Place, to tell us about Comet ISON and other various astronomy topics.

Hansel and Lattis discussed Comet ISON and what is making it so newsworthy. Lattis told us about the history of the comet and what we can expect to see later this year. Hansel and Lattis also covered several other astronomy related topics such as, earlier comets, the Voyager, and aurora borealis.
