Comet ISON

Comet ISON appeared for few days before sunrise in this month. I was lucky to take few images of it. Now it has hidden itself in sun light for its closest pass to Sun on 28th November 2013. We (astronomers) are looking forward for its safe passage though solar atmosphere. If it survived then it will be visible to unaided eye from 6th December till January 2014!

I took this image of comet on 18th November 2013 at 5:15am using my Casio camera. Comet is definitely green and its because of its carbon content. Its tail was fade and is hardly visible in images I have taken.

I am looking forward for its safe passage from solar atmosphere and then it will be brighter than its November appearance.
