Comet ISON Survived The Sun...Now It's Headed Towards Earth! On November 28, Comet ISON had its big date with the Sun, on what is known as Perihelion. This is the greatest Comet this world has ever seen, and on its biggest day, there was little to no media coverage. Those that were covering the event were not disclosing all the facts, and downright lying. NASA sites and others covering the event were very quick to tell the world that ISON died in the sun, that it was completely disintegrated. Then, after 3 hours, it was shown that ISON not only survived its confrontation with the sun, it came out stronger, wider and brighter. Here are four short videos to show how ISON not only survived the sun but came out thriving.
