6.) ISON: An Icy Winter Tail

4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Dec. 7, Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium

Free

Comet ISON may have vaporized, but plans are still going strong for a presentation on comets Dec. 7 at the planetarium. In ancient times they were considered bad omens and harbingers of death -- today they are awe-inspiring, but somewhat fragile, dirty snowballs. Come by for this free, family-friendly presentation to learn more!
