A couple of days ago (Thanksgiving Day), a friend of mine told me about the Comet ISON.  You could see some of the comet near the sun in the early afternoon; we were looking at it in Bellevue, Idaho.  It looked like the tail of the comet was multicolored:  green, blue, yellow—I think.  Maybe this is a portent from the Lord about more judgment and destruction on the United States because of the wickedness of this nation.
