From Central Queens, NY; this Comet creation heads North, behind the tall buildings of Manhattan.
A Rose is offered, but word on the street is that the Comet/Asteroid will still come.
The below buttons go to the respective Wikipedia sites. The bottom row of pictures are my photographs of items other than the comets listed.
While the story IS fiction, what stimulated it was my reading in the news that on August 8th 2013 NASA had lost communication with the spacecraft they have sent after Comet ISON. They believe it to be 'tumbling in space' now. Or maybe, it's returning pictures of a comet with a woman's face. Can't show THAT to the public!
The reason the below story is included here is not to make light of the situation, but rather to try and bring it to life. I don't really know WHAT is going on but there have certainly been unusual things going on in the skies - and, caught on my camera.
