You Thought You Were Rid of Us...

...but we're baa-aack!!

Didn't mean to make that sound creepy but, like a bad conspiracy theory, we never really go away.

What happens to ISON's remains?

Apologies for going quiet on this site - it takes a while to recover from events like this! I have actually started several blog posts and then never gotten chance to finish them. That will happen eventually, and I'll post new content on here from time to time, but right now I just want to address this one issue that I'm still getting an email bombardment about: what happens now to comet ISON's remains?

What Next for the CIOC?

Apologies for going a tad quiet for a few days. The perihelion week for comet ISON was just ridiculously busy, and a short day for me was 12 full hours, so I needed to back off for a couple of days to try and catch my breath and prepare for the data analysis phase, and continue to respond to media enquiries, etc. We have a few things going on next so here's a quick summary.

In ISON's Wake, a Trail of Questions

I always find that writing the first line in a blog post is the hardest, and this has never been truer that now as I struggle to decide where I should even begin. My @SungrazerComets Twitter feed, and my email accounts, are all blowing up with questions about comet ISON. Many of them have already been answered, and many of them have unsatisfying answers, but I'll do my best. First, a little personal note...

I'll just say this upfront right now: whatever you read in the following blog post, please feel free to assume it is completely incorrect and the truth is actually quite contrary to what I'm saying. It has been - and continues to be - one of those days.
