Photo hunt for Comet ISON begins

hunt for ison

I'm very hyped up with this Comet ISON, I just waited for its brightest glory as it approaches near our sun and I heard from the news that the comet is getting brighter as it approaches our sun.

Btw, the photo above is not the ISON ahahahaha. My son noticed the moon  at around 10am and I'm surprised that he got an awesome eye sight. I took out my camera and snap this to check if its really our moon or another object floating in the sky.

For the Comet ISON, I'm not sure if we can see this with our naked eye, but with the right viewing gear and some knowledge, we can spot the position of Comet ISON.

A little google-fu can help.

045343
Comet ISON is the most observed comet in history of man, the comet will pass at Earth til the end of November. This is a monumental docu at NGC, because the comet is very special because in this digital age, the observation is getting better and better. I also tried hunting for the comet Pannster last March 2013 and I failed to capture it on its last day, you can check out my photo story here at - http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-photo-walk-some-scenes-in-luneta-park.html

But I’m happy that our pinoy astronomers captured it in Luneta. But for Comet ISON, I’m not sure if anyone from us here in the PH viewed it. But there’s still a chance to see it by just watching National Geographic Channel tonight Nov 27 at 10pm for the “Comet of the Century” feature.

2013 Chicago Toy & Game Fair - A Special Report #chitagfair



November 23, 2013 (Navy Pier, Chicago IL USA) - An annual toy and game fair was held in Navy Pier in Chicago with over 250 exhibitors showcasing their new game features and inventions. The most interesting part of this event is kids (like me, just kidding) have the chance to explore, play and test these new toys and games. 

Major sponsors from biggest toy manufacturers and distributors like Hasbro, Playsmart, The Playmakers, Oxford Games, Leap Frog, and a lot more gave their best shots to introduce their new products and gain public attention to all participants. 

According to Mary Couzin (Founder and President of Chicago Toy & Game Group), quoted from the newsletter she said:
"The Chicago Toy and Game group is passionate about play and we promote it through all kinds of events: through fashion at our PlayChic toy/game/entertainment fashion show, through our support of inventors at our Toy and Game Inventor of the Year Awards, through our Games in Education Conference and website, our Young inventor Challenge and of course, The Chicago Toy & Game Fair and more." 

Other main attraction on that event are as follows:

  • Young Inventor Challenge - wherein you can view original game creations from our smart kid inventors
  • Marusenko Sphere Contest - test your puzzle skills against other players
  • Spot it! Tournament - Test your spot skills and win special prizes


The two day event offers fun and excitement to all ages plus explore Chicago's pride - the Navy Pier.
Navy Pier is a 3,300-foot long pier on the Chicago shoreline of Lake Michigan. It is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of the Near North Side community area. The pier was built in 1916 at a cost of $4.5 million. (Wikipedia)
