Update : Comet ISON as seen by satellite COR2-A

Comet ISON: Faded Glory ( 27-30 November, 2013 )

The comet ISON as seen by the satellite COR2-A , capturing its approach towards the Sun . The comet makes a sharp turn around the hot brutal Sun , and moves away again in space … but not without damage ! It does not look good and it will probably not be possible to see this comet ISON with the naked eye .
