ISON Comet of century, bright even in day time.

ISON is the nickname of comet C/2012 S1, which is named Institute for Astronomy (International Scientific Optical Network) because there is no official name. But to be named expected to be “Nevski-Novichonok” By the discovery.

This comet may be the brightest comet in the last hundred years or it may be several hundred years old. Since the discovery of the distance from the sun, far from the September 21, 2012, which was discovered from the sky Photo taken on December 28, 2011 due to the distance from Jupiter to get almost to the orbit of Saturn. Comet is a very large , astronomers believe that comet is approaching the sun is bright on the magnitude described -10 to -16,
respectively. At least as bright as Comet Ikeya-Seki (C/1965 S1), which was the brightest comet in the last fifty years,
ISON comet it is possible to be bright as the full moon or may be more.

Comet is approaching the Sun November 28, 2013, and the Near-Earth 0.42 AU from Earth on Dec 26, 2013 during the best time to visit is during December 2013 the position of the comet with the comet is quite good. Seen around the world, But the Northern Hemisphere than the Southern Hemisphere. Comet is approaching the sun and the rays started with a small telescope or binoculars from September 2013 to March 2014, but can be seen with the naked eye. Mid-October 2013 to mid January 2014 to see clearly even in a city full of light pollution. Also there is a possibility that could be seen even in daylight.
Although predicting the brightness of comets may be difficult and several times it was wrong. However, there are several reasons that make astronomers believe that comets ISON is very bright.

1. Was found very far that mean it a large majority.
2. It is very close to the Sun, from the surface of the sun is only one million miles. When the comet approaches the Sun it usually very bright and a long tail that impressive.
3. Believe that the first ISON comet approaches the Sun, the first is always bright more.
4. A comet’s orbit overlaps of comet of the year C/1680 V1 believe that the two comets are pieces split off from the same object. It has elements in common. On bright comets of 1680 and the comet tail ISON it will look the same.

ISON very near the sun, astronomers can I watch isolated phenomenon the stress of gravity and very high speed. In the past, some comet approaches the Sun it start to be alone, But It came back out to split into two or more. Some comets are small and It had to go to break.

I am very excited and looking forward to the time of the visit of the comet suspense.
