I was waiting to here if the comet made it around the sun along with many others but then suddenly all news about the comet stopped.

What happened?

Did the comet just disappear?

Is it still on course to pas near the earth and why have I not been able to get a glimpse of it via our telescope?

Does anyone have any new info on COMENT ISON since it circled the sun?

I don't think much of it survived and what did, didn't give us the spectacular show we were hoping for.

There are people still saying it is out there but there are no pictures after Dec 11 or 12th.

No one said it didn't survive.

Does anyone think there is a chance this is going to hit earth and that is why it is all hush hush. there are conspiracy theories it will hit earth sometime in January around rhe mid month to the end. But can't get any data on it and NASA is MUM.

If it is going to hit the Earth, do you really want to know? What can we do? Don't worry, live life as if every day is going to be your last and one day you will be correct.

I am really wanting to know what happened.

did it get destroyed? Is it still going to pass by so we can see it?

We have been waiting and all of a sudden NASA and media silence.

It's gone, Sol ate most of it and the rest, well too small to see now.

A small amount of debris made it past the sun, than disappeared. The Hubble couldn't even see the debris it was so small. You know Google could have answered this question in seconds.

That's why no one is talking about it, there is nothing to talk about.

Possible Remnants Of ISON Found By Amateur Astronomer - NASA

You know what I find amazing is that ISON had travelled all through the galaxy collecting ice and debris for so long and it's final part of its journey was our sun and in a way we got to witness it. I enjoyed the pics it produced, not as much as cheesy loved it

It's better to BURN OUT, than fade away.

seen this early today.

Dear members, I tried imaging of the ephemeris of C/2012 S1 ISON at 11,000 feet above sea level. There looked to be some faint and vast elongated object near the direction on the frame showing some amount of IFN, integrated flux nebulae, though I can not confirm it the remnant of the comet. The object was faint as IFN. www.flickr.com... I will image the ephemeris area again in the coming days, and I may be able to confirm it, if it moved as expected. The object looked vast and faint, and telephoto lens of focal length 150mm - 300mm may be suitable for imaging. Best Wishes, hiro

What wasn't blown away after it past the sun is still following it's original anticipated trajectory.
That material is not reflecting much light, Mainly just gravely stuff,

No chance of interfering with earth. I believe it will pass aprox 40 million mile away to the north of our artic pole.

We will pass through ISONs incoming debris field around Jan 17, if I recall correctly,
This debris is just dust and not expect to cause anything other than, hopefully, a cool meteor shower.

Comet ISON has fallen apart into being a conically-spreading -out massive rock pile. Sections of the rockpile will hit earth on January 6 to Jan 16 2014 as a meteor shower which has a high probability of displaying green bolides and fireballs that will hit the ground,like the one in Russia a few months ago. Why Russia? It is the most expansive country in the world, lengthwise.Most of the bolides and fireballs hit the oceans unnoticed.

If Ison is still out there it is over 50 million miles away by now and going further away, if anything we will pass threw the remnants of Isons tail mid January. Ison will be long past by then, like 200,000,000 miles past, the only thing that should be there is pretty much nothing. They had said Ison was on a 400,000+ plus year orbit, I don't know what kind of tid bits could be trailing behind Ison but is most likely tiny stuff. Small stuff that would burn up before hitting the Earth.

Do you have any sources for the claim of fireballs striking the earth?

Well that's not very reassuring... Happy new year to Russia!

The best I can find is this:


"For several days around January 12, 2014, Earth will pass through a stream of fine-grained debris from Comet ISON," says Wiegert. "The resulting shower could have some interesting properties.


science.nasa.gov...

But the section of the tail we pass through is anywhere close to where the head of the comet was/is.

So we might get a small increase in meteors, but I doubt it will be anything spectacular. The article suggests it's literally just the dust trail we're passing through, so there won't even be anything to burn up and create a light show.
