Last week we saw reports and photos of a wild looking, mutating six tailed asteroid. This week it appears Comet Ison has become neon blue and is apparently sprouting a second tail.  The much ballyhooed space visitor to our solar system also has new competition for “most popular comet of 2013″ – newly discovered “Comet Lovejoy” which observers say is now visible also and brighter in the evening sky than Ison. [ Hmmm. ]

But it gets even better. The David Vose news channel on YT posted a report where it is posited than Comet Ison, is, in fact, the much discussed and dreaded NIBIRU, and may be as big as a brown dwarf star. But don’t run down the stairs and lock yourself into your bunker just yet. I don’t think their assessment is anywhere close to true. I included the video anyway. It’s entertaining, at the least.

Not to be outdone, since so many eyes are now on space, Lady Gaga decided to capitalize on the momentary fascination with all things celestial that grow tails, and has announced she will soon sing from space:

Wouldn’t it be great if she just stayed out there, floating mindlessly in the empty vacuum of space with her many heads and tails spraying out all around her, and never come back?  One can always hope.

Below are some of the assorted citizen journalist and official news reports I have rounded up from this week’s deluge which cover just part of the ever more strange and inexplicable goings on in space this month. Scientists are scratching their heads and amateur astronomers are going nuts over these newest developments, caught be Hubble and other telescopes.

And don’t forget …

  1. Comet ISON‘s highly anticipated flyby of the sun is now just two weeks away, and scientists and skywatchers alike hope the encounter gives them another reason to be thankful this holiday season. If ISON survives this perilous plunge, the icy wanderer could put on quite a show in the ensuing weeks, becoming visible to the naked eye throughout much of December, experts say. ISON was discovered by …
  2. The potentially incredible Comet ISON has a companion in the morning sky. The morning sky currently plays host to a newly discovered comet, which is at the present moment is actually higher in the sky, noticeably brighter and easier to see than the most-ballyhooed Comet ISON. The new comet was discovered by Australian amateur astronomer Terry Lovejoy. Lovejoy discovered a spectacular sungrazing …

  3. The much-anticipated Comet ISON is now visible to the naked eye according to reports from many observers. Comet ISON — the potential “comet of the century” — has suddenly brightened in an outburst of activity with just two weeks to go before it literally grazes the surface of the sun, In recent months, Comet ISON has repeatedly befuddled forecasters trying to anticipate just how bright it will …

  3. Well, every day the tough get tougher, the others crawl deeper into their holes, and Lady Gaga plans to sing from space while Rome burns and people begin eating each other in the Philippines. They have a phrase for times like this up in Montana. “Time to cowboy/cowgirl up.”
