Comet ISON

Recommended Posts

Sounds great at the moment, lets hope this one actually lives up to the hype. How amazing would that be, although the article didn't mention whether it would be a southern or northern hemisphere object when it brightens.

Found the answer to my own question. Will be in the constellation of Virgo, low in the pre-dawn sky.

The reports for this comet really do make the mouth water in anticipation but previous cometary predictions make us so sceptical (perhaps rightly). But if this only reaches half the magnitude predicted - and that requires all sorts of information (nucleus size, composition, coma size, etc) - it should be one hell of a treat.
