I just went looking.

Sun is out, unobscured — though there are some wispy, white clouds.

Quintessential New England, N.H., winter sky — brilliant blue.

I used BOTH my eclipse glasses and covering the Sun with my hand.

Took Devanee with me too.

Could NOT see anything. Maybe the sky is too bright. Maybe ISON isn’t bright enough.

Comet Ikeya–Seki, in 1965, C/1965 S1, THE BRIGHTEST comet seen since 1935 — which was indeed daylight visible, naked eye, close to perihelion. Not so, at least from N.H., for ISON.
