My charming and beautiful cousin, Laura, made me aware of Comet ISON a few days ago. It was discovered last September by a pair of amateur Russian astronomers. The forecasts of the show to be put on by ISON are amazing: ten times brighter than Venus and brighter even than the Moon! No one knows yet how it will look later this year, but I chose to draw it with an antitail since that effect seems to be fairly common and very showy.
I numbered this card "28" because that is the day in November when ISON will achieve perihelion, being under two million miles from the Sun. It's also my birthday. Hurrah!
