I was born, raised, and live in the United States, but I have moved around quite a bit. My father was in the military, and then worked at NASA during the Apollo years, so I was raised loving science and space, and all that Jazz. I love animals too.
Awhile back I heard on the news that an asteroid was going to make a close approach to earth. On that same day a ﬁery explosion happened over the skies of Russia. I thought that was a little closer than what they were saying, but then found out that it was a different asteroid all together. It came from a different direction I guess.
Then this comet ISON was supposed to give us a show, and I thought, maybe I should start
paying attention to what's going on out there in the skies above. Well I guess the sun swallowed up ISON as it tried to pass by, and the sun didn't even burp or bat an eye-lash. I never saw a thing. Yet still, it would have been nice to have seen something. So I subscribed to Astronomy Magazine.
