I have no idea if this was posted already.....I couldn't find it.


On November 28, 2013, the SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) spacecraft will off-point at three different positions as Comet ISON moves through perihelion. This website will display near realtime images and movies of this sungrazing comet. Images should begin appearing sometime between 12:45 pm and 1:00 pm ET.


So get your popcorn ready and enjoy the show...

SDO views comet ISON

Peace

According to their own words..."This website will display near realtime images and movies of this sungrazing comet".

I guess a few minutes delay would be logical.

It actually says in the images posted:

171 NM (ultra violet range).

It's from the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) and I believe the image is a false color image. meaning the human eyes can't see it but the data is a digitally recast into colors that emphasize physically important features.

Oh my god, that's one beautiful tail ISON's sporting *fans self* Let's hope that's a sign of more beautiful things to come in the next few weeks!

"ion tail" and "dust tail", beautiful for sure.

My question is this though, why has ISON's brightness sharply decreased in the past few hours? It used to have very large "brightness" artifacts, but they're completely gone now.

Maybe the camera is just less sensitive to light towards the centre? Since the sun is there?
