COMET OF THE CENTURY

 

 

 

The potential “comet of the century” Comet ISON could either become a shining visual treat or a fizzled out chunk of rock and ice when it makes its close pass of the sun, but which will it be?

As the comet moves toward its close encounter with the star, amateur astronomers are providing information that could help scientists understand more about Comet ISON’s shift into brilliance or mediocrity. You can watch a video about Comet ISON’s current brightness here on SPACE.com.

“Comet ISON is approaching Mars in the pre-dawn sky,” Carey Lisse, head of NASA’s Comet ISON Observing Campaign, said in a statement. “It is invisible to the naked eye, but within reach of backyard telescopes.” [Photos of Comet ISON: A Potentially Great Comet]
