Over the course of the animation, Comet ISON brightens by a factor of at least four, and possibly as much as a factor of 10. It easily outshines the 1st-magnitude red giant star Antares to the lower left of the sun.

This morning it is indeed with a heavy heart that I show you the image opposite, in which we clearly see that ISON has faded rather dramatically in the past few hours. It is still likely around -1 magnitude, but this number is falling fast.
