HUGE fricking comet!

...just keep in mind 450,000 km is the diameter of the coma, not the nucleus.  It'll be interesting to see!

I was wondering if anyone else read this part.

Correction, when something's that large, it's "I hope earth doesn't hit it" (And yes I know the actual comet is quite small) :D

Even the coma could cause some problems (or some pretty cool sights) if we passed through it, although nothing by any means severe.

Umm, you're wrong. Things do hit the Earth. They have hit the Earth for millions of years and will continue to do so. A meteor or a comet hit Tunguska in Russia in 1908 (an area of forest). A meteor or a comet helped wipe out the dinosaurs. And so on.
