I think it was Phil that said they are having issues setting the contrast on the SDO spacecraft which could be why we aren't seeing much.

Ah, I vaguely remember a mention of this, I think it was mentioned as a cause for sudden massive brightening, too? Or was that something else with the equipment?


My fingers, toes, arms, legs etc are crossed! Hope it stays together!

Same here. If only I could get a 4-leaf clover, rabbit's foot, lucky penny & tie my tatas in a bow, we'd be in good luck business.

Just said it appears that the nucleus has broken up, but they aren't sure.

Use the IP for SOHO/LASKO, as the website is having trouble, and the DNS URL is not working well.

198.118.248.97...

ISON is history, but it was fun following it's journey.

R.I.P. ISON

Nasa just said we don't need to worry yet, the pics are hard to read.

ISON might be IGONE.

So the entire thing will vaporize, even the rocks, the fellow on youtube is saying, and they can "look at the light and analyze the images" to ascertain what it's made of. Or used to be made of.

But wait, one guy is saying we shouldn't be worried, that the cameras weren't really made to look so closely near the sun - although he says it's much further away than Lovejoy. So who knows. I will sit and wait.

But in 2011 we saw lovejoy in the same SDO cam's ...so... i think it's gone!

Yea!

They're saying the SDO isn't designed to not point at the sun, so there isn't as much data as the spacecraft is used to.

The main reason they said is that they don't know what the comet is made of, and the SDO spacecraft is design to pick up certain molecules.

I feel bad for people like Cheesy who honestly seemed to take joy from this comet.
I'm interested to see the people that were convinced it was anything other than a comet explain this one.

I'm reading on twitter that SDO field is not wide enough to see ISON.

Yea
I'm definitely disappointed that we won't get to see the tail in December, that would have been absolutely gorgeous.
