Comet LoveJoy: A Spark of Hope

Comet Lovejoy is visible near Earth’s horizon in this nighttime image photographed by NASA astronaut Dan Burbank, Expedition 30 commander, onboard the International Space Station on Dec. 22, 2011. -NASA SDO

Comet LoveJoy survived the close encounter with the sun and as a result, it became one of the most stunning sungrazing comets of all time! It is now visible in the southern hemisphere. The name of this comet fits our idea of Christmas (Love and Joy!). Also, it serves as a reminder that in life there is such thing as surviving the impossible (this comet flew throughthe hot atmosphere of the sun and emerged intact!

Our country is grieving with what happened in Northern Mindanao. Like Comet LoveJoy, we can overcome this tragedy! Makakabangon din tayo!

Merry Christmas to everyone especially to my fellow Filipinos! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! 🙂

To the stars! 🙂
