    For Your Astronomers: Interactive Simulator: Comet ISON Model

    Link: Comet ISON Model



    Comet ISON could turn out to be the brightest comet in a long time [if it survives the close approach to The Sun] However it could also prove to be a disappointment. Hoping for a good show...

    According to some that might be a little premature:

    ...“Rumours of Comet ISON’s death may be greatly exaggerated!” It does appear now that part of Comet ISON may have survived...
    Link: Comet ISON 2013 - News, Facts, Information and LIVE Distance Data

    Destroyed or not NASA has a couple of pages on its website dedicated to Comet ISON and related resources:

    Link 1: Comet ISON | NASA

    Link 2: Small Worlds: Comet ISON Toolkit

    What Happened to ISON?: Observing spacecraft report signs sungrazing comet ISON was torn apart by the sun. But scientists are reporting something still in the location of the comet. Could it be a fragment or debris from ISON? Stay tuned.
