Comet Siding Spring: Live Shots 2014

Comet Siding Spring is a rare comet, and is passing Mars from a mere 88,000 miles as it makes its maiden voyage towards the sun. This close approach to the Red Planet will give NASA's fleet of satellites and rovers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study this comet up close.
