White Comet surprises astronomers
21.06.2047 - Scientists from NASA and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) have discovered a comet on its way to the inner part of our solar system. Although its scientific name is M/2047-S2 (Neumann), the media refer to it as “Yeti”. First analytics indicate that this is an unusually large and bright comet which should be very easy to spot. Astronomy experts are surprised and equally shocked that it wasn’t discovered earlier. This however, does not seem to be cause for concern as preliminary calculations of its orbit indicate that the comet will miss the earth completely. It will then approachthe sun at a distance that will very likely cause the comet to burn out.
