Are YOU ready?

You know if your going to make a doomsday prediction, having your followers all commit suicide is one way to be sure you don't get crap for being wrong.

Like what ever happened to the guy who predicted the end of the world based on the bible code? He had followers giving away all their possessions, telling their own children that they would be saved but they were doomed, all kinds of fun stuff. Are the radio stations still on the air?

By late November of this year, it should be within 1.2 km of our nearest star

1.2km? Sure

I got gypped by Kahoutek in '76, and again by Halley in '86.
Hale-Bopp was kinda cool, as was Hyakutake.

I hope this one is spectacular

It's still possible that this one could fail in the same mode as Kohoutek, but it sure looks promising. Well-oriented for US observers, too. Shouldn't even have to get up before dawn to see it -- it should be high in the evening sky, with no moon. Not that the lack of moonlight should matter much -- this is looking less like a "let's go someplace dark to see it", and more like a "Mommy, what's that big bright flag in the sky?"
