Many people recall spectacular Comet Hale-Bopp from the spring of 1997, shown in this image taken from Georgia. It is the brightest comet most of us have seen in our lives. If newly discovered Comet ISON lives up to some of the optimistic expectations, it could exceed the brightness of Hale-Bopp by a factor of 4,000, or it could fizzle out as it rounds the sun in November 2013.

Whitney Barker hit a hole-in-one in the par 3 Hole 7 at Haymaker Golf Course. The shot was 112 yards with an 8-iron. Barker said the shot was exciting. “It was awesome,” she said. “That doesn’t happen, right? It took two bounces, rolled up the green really nice and then I thought it stopped. I turned around to put my club back in the cart and the two guys we were golfing with said, ‘Oh my God, it’s still moving!’ I turned back around, and it just disappeared.” Whitney Barker / Courtesy
