The ISON Comet is coming for a Thanksgiving visit, according to the Editor of Astronomy, David Eicher.
“Right now, it’s in the morning sky and it’s going to be in the morning sky and it’s going to be in the morning sky after Thanksgiving. Briefly, it’ll be close to the sun. On the 27th, 28th and 29th it’ll be in the daytime sky. But right now it’s just getting up to the point where it’s close to being visible to the eye alone, now that’s in a really dark sky away from the city. You’ll need a pair of binoculars or a small telescope. In a week or so it should be a naked eye object.”
Eicher was a guest on the AM Edition Wednesday morning. You can find out more about the ISON Comet at Astronomy.com
