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.
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
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?
