Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Too Close to the Sun

The comet ISON is today going to fly as close as it ever has, or ever can, to our Sun. It remains to be seen if that will result in the same fate as suffered by Icarus.  The temperature where ISON is currently speeding along is, we are told, some 5000 degrees C. That's toasty. And the comet is out there with no sunscreen...

At 2 p.m. today, which is right about the time I am writing this, ISON will be within 1.2 km. of the sun.

Will it make it? Will it shatter apart and burn like chaff?  Will it make it past the Sun and then come undone, lighting up our sky for weeks to come with shadows of its passing?

It's all on live feed... this being 2013, you cannot do ANYTHING, ANYWHERE without somebody putting it up on the Internet...
