Comet ISON reappears in new NASA images, scientists say nucleus 'may still be intact'

Despite earlier evidence that comet ISON had burned up and disintegrated during a close encounter with the sun, NASA now believes the comet may have survived the heat. New imagery captured last night shows material from the comet heading up and away from the sun, and scientists believe a small …

Comet Ison: a viewer's guide

Ison has survived its encounter with the sun – or at least part of it has. This means that it could still brighten sufficiently to be visible to the unaided eye in December's night skies. Estimates of what we will be able to see will improve over the next few days as astronomers track the comet's …

Comet Ison appears to vanish from space - video

A comet seemingly disappears as it journeys around the sun 730,000 miles from the surface. Astronomers have used a fleet of telescopes to locate Ison, but to no avail. Karl Battams, an astrophysicist with the Naval Research Laboratory, says Ison has been unpredictable since they started observing …

APOD: Surprising Comet ISON (2013 Nov 30) Image Credit: NASA, ESA, SOHO Video Editing: Babak Tafreshi (TWAN) 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.
