Heavenly lights put on a show


Somerset —

At its brightest on November 28, ISON may be seen in daytime. Only nine other comets dating back to the 17th century have been bright enough to be seen in daylight.
Following a day of heavy rain, a lingering clouds covered Monday night’s light show in this part of Kentucky. A spokesman at the National Weather Service in Jackson said NWS didn’t get any reports of northern lights. Neither did Pulaski County 9-1-1 Communications Center.
Chief Meteorologist Bill Meck at WLEX wrote on the station’s website that he searched for the northern lights. He went up Russell Cave Road about seven miles north of Lexington and saw what he described as a red glow in the sky. However, Meck said that could have been reflections from Cincinnati.
