Description

Comet ISON Viewing Party
The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center will host COFFEE & COMET, a very early morning viewing party for Comet ISON on Tuesday, November 26, at 5:30AM! The Space Geek Team will fling open the Ticketing Rotunda and be ready to track the passing of ISON over Balboa Park! Galileo’s Café will be open—you can pre-order a light breakfast, or purchase coffee and munchies that morning. Join us to get all the breaking news about Comet ISON as it streaks through the sky over San Diego and is visible to us (weather and marine layer permitting, of course!). It is expected to be visible from 5:45AM through sunrise at 6:30AM on this date. Our Space Geek Team will share their knowledge of comets in general and ISON specifically, and they’ll help us locate it in the sky. They include Dr. Lisa Will, Fleet Astronomer; John Young, Planetarium Producer; Jason Hammond, Education Manager of School Programs; and Mary Anderson, Fleet sky photographer. Because we have no way of guaranteeing that ISON will make it, there will not be a charge to join us!
