I took the liberty of doing a search for the article and it appears to have come from Spaceweather.com.

www.spaceweather.com...

Your first two pics are from that site, so where did you get the other(unbelievable) ones?

I would say they are fake, ISON shows up brighter in them than it does in the pics that were taken with a telescope and camera.

Here's a 36 minute timelapse I made of ISON yesterday morning after the outburst began:

Unfortunately I was out of town until yesterday morning, so I wasn't able to get any images of it immediately prior to the outburst, but it is much brighter now than the previous time I imaged it. It showed up quite plainly in 1 second exposures through my telescope. Each of the above exposures was two minutes long to reveal the full extent of the coma and show the tail. It's currently cloudy so no images this morning and tomorrow doesn't look too promising either

Yeah somewhat except 1000x Faster...

Wonder what it was and it certainly isn't no plane since I swear planes fly over all the time.

Isn't that just a shooting star?


That's what I wanted to think it was, but it was just too low and big to have been a shooting star.

What a lovely shade of blue ISON is... Hopi prophesy "Blue Kachina" is not foremost in my thought... despite the general rampant doom lust lately and the immediate connection made when ever something blue shows up overhead.

It would be fitting if the Hopi spread that prophesy to worry the Europeans who screwed them... and if so, job done, as I am human enough to note it and have a healthy respect for native intelligence and possible mystic powers... given enough strange cactus-herbs and time.

Thank you, Cheesy, sir, for the heads (and eyes) up. (Looks for higher ground near the four-corners region)

Nice! Thanks for the view!
Ison is so beautiful.

What do you think that is in the vid you posted?

Doesn't look like a comet to me but I'm no astronomer...

ETA - nvm, I see you answered it in a later post.

Look forward to hearing what you find out after the analysis.

Beautiful, appreciate the image. Time to get my scope back out tonight during the wee hours of the morning. ~$heopleNation

Well... Comet Ison outburst isn't good news. According to the electric model of comets when this happens it means the comet is struggling with intense radiation particles from the Sun, meaning it could disintegrate, and if it happens one of the chunks of Ison could hit our planet, because the planet is in the right position to catch that debris in the following weeks near the same time the supposed perihelion would happen!
So RED ALERT, this is not a show!

Always fascinate when you realize just how vast the universe really is - and then - you have these magnificient celestial bodies that travel at enormous speed all around us that come to visit now and then.

Attraction everywhere. Just like beings to beings. Celestial bodies work the same, attracted to bigger bodies, like they were alive.

Powerful.

That is so awesome! If in two weeks it gets even brighter, it's gonna be an amazing birthday gift for me.

By the way, does anyone know if it is visible in the south hemisphere? More specifically: latitude -23.962411 and longitude -46.322136?

I absolutely love astronomy, but I'm nothing but an amateur. I can identify some stuff on the southern sky but that's it haha.

So please help a girl out and tell me what direction to look at next weekend?

Me personally, I am more attracted to the not so big bodies.

Im just a little bit north of Toronto, and Stellarium tells me it should rise in the east just after 4am


I live just south of Guadalajara in Mexico. When and where should I look for it? TIA

Look east before sunrise, currently just below Virgo's brightest star if I recall correctly. Probably best to get up on a mountain or hill so you can clearly see the horizon to the east.

You might have seen an iridium flare.

Starts about 15 secs into video.

I've checked with Stellarium, and it's the same as for everybody else in the world - ISON rises in the East approximately 1hr before dawn.
