Comet ISON

Comet ISON should be visible with the naked eye this weekend. The weather looks good so why not have a look. The comet has been named 'the comet of the century' it has been increasing in brightness over the past couple of days so can now be seen with the naked eye. It is now in 'full outburst mode'. The comet is heading towards the sun and could potentially brighten everyday until the end of November. If it lasts it could be brighter than the moon and even be seen during the day. The comet is so close to the sun it is very close to the horizon so hopefully can be seen at sunrise. A clear dark sky with open countryside is the best place to see it. Good luck stargazing
