Comet ISON Coming Soon – Get Your Telescopes Ready – Where and When to Watch

Comet ISON Coming Soon – Get Your Telescopes Ready - where and when to seeThinking about buying a telescope? Perhaps the best reason to buy a telescope now is the upcoming opportunity to view Comet ISON in just a few months.

Discovered by Russian astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok in September 2012. Comet ISON, named after their night-sky survey program, the International Scientific Optical Network, is scheduled to make a grand appearance in the night sky this November.

While predicting the actual visibility of Comets is not a perfect science, ISON is expected to be spectacular. Some have even gone so far as to call Comet ISON “the Comet of Century.”

According to astronomers, Comet ISON will begin to interact with the sun’s atmosphere on November 20, 2013. If the giant ball of ice and rock does not break apart, experts say that it could glow as brightly as the moon with a long tail stretched out across the night sky. Some say that the comet could and even be briefly visible in daylight.

To get a really good look at Comet ISON, and just in case it doesn’t burn as brightly as predicted, now would be a good time to buy a telescope, or a good pair of binoculars.
