Ice Man is supposed to leave a rad trail many expect.

Or he could go Icarus and break up.
Whichever.

Is the brightness magnitude caused by the suns reflection? If so, as it gets closer to the sun, is this what will brighten it?
Also, is the outbound trajectory of any concern ?

The more important factor in brightness is the size of the coma and density of the tail.
It will continue to brighten as it nears the Sun but for reference, Hale-Bopp was clearly visible to the naked eye when it was the distance from the Sun which C/2012 S1 is now.

No danger whatsoever.

word comet derives from the Old English cometa from the Latin comēta or comētēs. That, in turn, is a latinisation of the Greek κομήτης ("wearing long hair"), and the Oxford English Dictionary notes that the term (ἀστὴρ) κομήτης already meant "long-haired star, comet" in Greek. Κομήτης was derived from κομᾶν ("to wear the hair long"), which was itself derived from κόμη ("the hair of the head") and[7][8


Interesting terminology.

At first glance I think of
"Being on Ice", perserved while in a Coma.
While in deep freeze cryogenics of course.

Coma the Lair of the Head.
Comet the Hair of the Head.
Comes in the Air above the Head.

Ok I need to stop this is a can of worms.
I got too many cans open currently.

don't be such a wet blanket.

do you get a kick out of taking the excitement out of things?


The best viewing will come in December, after the comet's perihelion, when ISON will hang in the predawn sky. Knight and Walsh did not offer their estimates of its brightness, but many astronomers expect ISON will be readily visible with the naked eye.

"If it does survive, that gives us the best chance for observing it from the ground and, for this to become a naked eye comet," Knight said. "We would really like to see the nucleus survive until at least a few days after perihelion."
really, I get the feeling you want that poor little comet to get crushed by the sun's gravity

Actually, I had very high hopes that I'd get to see a great show.

Reality has set in. At this point I'll be glad to even see it.

Is it possible there's a meteor shower once it's outbound from the sun? Around January?

Nothing but Fog every day lately where I am.
I wouldn't see a thing anyways

In January the Earth will be passing through the region where the comet will be in a couple of weeks. The comet will be above the plane of the ecliptic at that time but there is a slight chance that the we'll pass through the edge of its dust tail. So, maybe a bit of meteor activity.

No chance of anything on its outbound route.

Hale-Bopp was awesome not only for the show it put on but also for the fact that it essentially caught the world by surprise. Especially after that dud - Kohoutek.

I need to do a little digging but am curious as to why Hale-Bopp's display was so unexpected to astronomers and by extension the screaming mimi's in the MSM.

Was it just "missed" or did it deviate from what was the expected norm?

Sounds like you're expecting ISON to be more Kohoutek-like than Hall-Bopp like at this point...

For clarification then, the information in the OP is incorrect?

I guess I should be happy that its not the annukaki coming to destroy us. I was worried for a minute. I was packing my bunker with 6 months of fresh water, canned food, toilet paper, a short wave radio, porn magazines, family and relative albums, plenty of cat food, etc. Its about 50 feet deep.

Thank god almighty! Praise the lord. Praise jesus.

(just joking although on other sites they did make mention of spacecraft following the comet. Its probably bogus)

Gathered his bag of stars and ran away waving his flags perhaps. Be nice to see him pop back and confirm this as muck, from the horses mouth as you will
