I hear a comet will be passing I think he said 20 Nov 2013 that will be 5 times brighter than the moon. Sure hope I'm still around to see it. Case of beer and popcorn too.

The end of the would will have to be postponed. Here's what the article says. It's worth waiting for.

It’ll be visible to all of us in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres for at least a couple of months, from about November 2013 through January 2014. If so … worth the wait!

I remember back in 1957 I was out back yard in a dark area seeing my first comet, oh it was so far away. I showed my brother and mother, I was tickled pink. Next mornings paper ( New Comet Discovered ) "and my name wasn't on it". LOL I now have a pair of 25 X 100 and have yet see another one.

Until a week or so ago, when I raed an Article Online about the suspposed Apocalypes on December 21st 2012, I had NEVER Heard of The MAYAN Calendar. In fact, I wasn't even aware of December 21st subject in any way or form. I am an avid Follower of the Space Program, and have a high interest in Cosmos Study: No, I'm NOT Supersticious, and I'm Not Really into Astrology in any way, except any connection it has to Astronomy.
I have recently read Articles about about The Associated Predictions of Nostradamus, and how they have Supposedly Come True. Some of these (Theories for search of a Better Term), seem too coincidental, and some just seem like they Happened because Someone, with A Strange Behavioural Problem, have Decided To Make It Happen.
Haven't people got More Creative Objectives than to Worry About What MIGHT Happen because Someone thought up The Idea, and decided to Make BIG NEWS Out Of It !?!
Concentrate on Your Scientific Interests in A More Positive and Productive Manner ..... Forget About December 21st 2012 ......... It AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN !!!

Were you not able to see Hale Bopp in 1997?
