Wired Space Photo of the Day – ISON

Comet ISON Right Now

Here is what comet ISON looked like this morning through the Schulman 0.8 Telescope atop Mount Lemmon at the UA SkyCenter. I am certain more images of this will be coming out shortly as it increases in brightness during its dive towards the Sun. Here is hoping it survives that rendezvous and emerges as something spectacular on the other side!
