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.


Comet ISON Will Round The Sun At 18:45 GMT (UTC) Today, Thanksgiving — That Is 1:45 p.m. Eastern (U.S.). Watch On NASA.

What the actual orbital path looks like right now,
Thursday, November 28, 2013 — U.S. Thanksgiving.

It is now travelling close to
60 miles per second!

So it is covering a lot of distance very quickly.

Comet ISON Doing GREAT As It Hurtles Towards Sun — 60 Miles/Second. It Should Round The Sun OK. That Would Be Great.

Comet ISON is looking good!

It might round the Sun, i.e., perihelion, tomorrow, basically intact.

That would be GREAT for us on Earth. We will get too see it on the way back.

CLICK ON THE IMAGES …


lacsoc31127That is Comet ISON, at right,
streaking towards the ‘disc’ obscured Sun in the middle.

I am NOT an expert at reading LASCO images (given that I don’t do it often) but check out that small RINGED object on the opposite side, Southwest so to speak. I think that that is Saturn.

Real-time video from NASA and introduction on how SOHO LASCO C2 & C3
will be tracking Comet ISON. Good start page.

SOHO and STEREO are two of NASA’s space-based Solar observatory platforms.

They are a wonderful resource with always stunning images and data.

Make use of them on Wednesday, November 27 & Thursday,
November 28 (Thanksgiving) to watch Comet ISON streak by or
INTO the Sun
— in real time.

Here, embedded in the images, are the links you will need.

Enjoy.

My money is on Comet ISON surviving perihelion mainly intact. See if I am right.

SOHO LASCO C3 images — the blue filter. What I have underlined might be a minor comet. SOHO sees a LOT of these. Sometimes a FEW a day!
