    Will you be viewing Comet Ison when it emerges from behind the Sun in early December?

    The much anticipated Comet Ison is now at its closest approach to the Sun. In the next few days - if it survives - it will hopefully put on a good show, with the best viewing of a comet in living memory. I've been following this comet on my own hub/blog writing regular updates on its progress, so I hope to see it over the coming weeks I'd suggest others try to do the same as it may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Are you going to be out in early December trying to see this visitor from the outer Solar System?

    I hope to see ISON; I have a reminder marked on my calendar.

    Yes, I've reminded myself to go and see it. Will the best day be December 1st?

      I believe on 1st December, the comet may still be too close to the Sun to be visible - certainly too close to be visible safely. But 3-4 days later there should be sufficient separation between the two for Ison to be clearly visible before dawn.

    If it can be seen with the naked eye I would like to.  I do hope the comet survives.  We are on the west coast of Canada and often have some good views of activity in the night skies.
