Also glad to hear from Justin a few days ago that his photos of Comet ISON will be featured in the BBC documentary Comet of the Century: A Horizon Special a couple of days ago (not viewable online in Singapore). I believe he is the only Singaporean photographer credited in that programme.

Speaking of comets (and meteoroid, asteroid), one of the most frequently asked question is "will it hit Earth?".

So here's an informative National Geographic documentary which will complement the "Comet of the Century". It is the episode two of the Space Mysteries series titled "Comets: Target Earth?". And here are the showtimes for the upcoming week:
