'Comet of the Century or Bust' planetarium show comes to Ritchie Observatory

The planetarium show “Comet of the Century or Bust” comes to the Ritchie Observatory at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.

Comet ISON has been heralded as the Comet of the Century, but recent observations suggest that this sun grazing comet may break apart before blazing through our night sky. Astronomer Dave Fong will present the latest findings and give tips on how to best view Comet ISON.

The show is free to members of the Battle Point Astronomical Association;

$2 donation suggested for nonmembers, $5 for families.

If the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes for public star-gazing.
