Just been reading about this new comet that is on it's way, It's called C/2012-S1,It's expected to buzz by the Sun late next year and if It stays intact it could be as bright as the moon,at the moment it's about as far out as Jupiter so next year in mid November through December 2013 and into January 2014 it could reach magnitude -11 to -16 which means it could be seen in daylight. Lets hope they got there maths right and its going to be as good as they say,It will be something to look forward to
