Comet ISON Fading Fast – 2013-12-01

NASA’s solar observatories have been tracking comet c2012 S1 (ISON) as it rounded the sun. On Nov 27th it encountered a solar flare and then began to fade noticeably. They predict that “this development makes it unlikely that Comet ISON will put on a good show after it exits the glare of the sun in early December”.
