Fun Fact Friday: 2/27/15 -Comets

Did you know it takes a comet about 800 years to completely circulate around the sun?

Apparently, we just recently saw a comet survive its journey around the sun’s atmosphere without evaporating, unlike most Kreutz comets. What does that mean? It has been stated it is a different comet not like the Kreutz comets we have come to know. You can view the data online and, as it turns out, there is video footage available to online viewers who have discovered comets.
