Comet ISON Update

Space Weather News for Nov. 16, 2013

COMET ISON UPDATE: Comet ISON is now ten times brighter than it was on
Nov. 13-14 when an unexpected outburst propelled the sundiver into the
realm of naked-eye visibility. Observers around the world confirm
seeing the comet as a faint smudge low in the eastern sky before
sunrise. Backyard telescopes reveal a riot of gaseous streamers
trailing behind the comet's brightening (and possibly fragmenting)
core. With almost two weeks to go before ISON plunges into the sun's
atmosphere, it is already one of the most beautiful and active comets
in years. Current images and observing tips may be found at

DON'T MISS THE NEXT SOLAR FLARE: Lately, solar activity has been high.
Would you like a call when solar flares are underway? X-flare alerts
are available from (text) and (voice).
