APOD: Surprising Comet ISON (2013 Nov 30) Image Credit: NASA, ESA, SOHO Video Editing: Babak Tafreshi (TWAN) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131130.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=361Nq0VIqo8 http://vimeo.com/80568171 Explanation: After failing to appear for Sun staring spacecraft at perihelion, its harrowing closest approach to the Sun, sungrazing Comet ISON was presumed lost. But ISON surprised observers yesterday as material still traveling along the comet's trajectory became visible and even developed an extensive fan-shaped dust tail. Edited and processed to HD format, this video (vimeo, youtube) is composed of frames from the SOHO spacecraft's coronographs. It follows the comet in view of the wide (blue tint) and narrow (red tint) field cameras in the hours both before and after perihelion passage. In both fields, overwhelming sunlight is blocked by a central occulting disk. A white circle indicates the Sun's positon and scale. With questions to be answered and the tantalizing possibility that a small cometary nucleus has survived in whole or part, surprising comet ISON will be rising before dawn in planet Earth's skies in the coming days. http://twanight.org/tafreshi Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131130 #APOD
