Comet_ISON_Oct_08_2013

Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) to pass at extremely close distance (135,000 km) to Mars on 19 October 2014. From our planet, this celestial encounter will be best visible from equatorial latitudes. AstroSafari sets off an expedition to Zanzibar, where the ocean breeze provides clear skies. During a week at one of the world’s finest beaches we will be able to observe as comet approaches the Red planet every night.
