I do find it odd that some of our esteemed members who roam these kind of threads are very silent.
That photo is almost just down right creepy!
Yes, yes.. I think I can.
It is more rugby ball shaped than football shaped... Footballs are round
PS - there is no such thing as 'soccer' ... just american football and oz rules
A little out there but my Dog of 16 years passed away today, Leading up to her death I learned ISON had increased in brightness by 6. Today I learn ISON has wings. I like to imagine it as a representation of her soul. ISON, came early this year when her troubles began, it has increased in brightness as well as shows wing like wisps. It will leave the solar system a bright spectacle for all to see, and travel the universe.
Comet ISON shows off its tail in this three-minute exposure taken on Nov. 19, 2013 at 6:10 a.m. EST, using a 14-inch telescope located at the Marshall Space Flight Center.

I had additional set of subs with 120sec exposure, but managed to make only 8 of them.
Processing them with dynamic range compression showed even more details of the core.
It's not at all certain that Comet ISON will turn out to be the "comet of the century," as hoped, but a couple of things are certain: It's not an alien spaceship, and it hasn't split up into three pieces.
And here's a new comet just discovered.
Odd to have FIVE visible at the same time.
