Comet Ison to light up morning skies in the run-up to Christmas

If it survives an encounter with the sun this week, comet Ison will put on an impressive early morning display in the run-up to Christmas.

APOD: Bright Planetary Nebula NGC 7027 from Hubble (2013 Aug 26) Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, ESA, NASA; Processing: Delio Tolivia Cadrecha http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130826.html Explanation: It is one of the brightest planetary nebulae on the sky -- what should it be named? First discovered in 1878, nebula NGC 7027 can be seen toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus) with a standard backyard telescope. Partly because it appears there as only an indistinct spot, it is rarely referred to with a moniker. When imaged with the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope, however, great details are revealed. Studying Hubble images of NGC 7027 have led to the understanding that it is a planetary nebula that began expanding about 600 years ago, and that the cloud of gas and dust is unusually massive as it appears to contain about three times the mass of our Sun. Pictured above in assigned colors, the resolved, layered, and dust-laced features of NGC 7027 might remind sky enthusiasts of a familiar icon that could be the basis for an informal name. Please feel free to make suggestions -- some suggestions are being recorded, for example, in an online APOD discussion forum. http://www.facebook.com/delio.cadrecha Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130826 #APOD
