that has likely never passed through our inner solar system before, so it's larger and more reflective than those our sun has already blasted.
C/2012 S1 won't just be bright; it'll be large enough to see without the need for binoculars
It's going to pass closest to Earth on December 26th 2013. The religious 'END OF THE WORLD' nuts are going to go balls on bat shit crazy.
