[quote:Anonymous Coward 31036137:MV8yMDk1MjczXzM1MzI1OTMwXzkzNzdGNDQ3] The unique characteristics of ISON are: [b]1- ISON is from the outer edges of the Solar System:[/b] Meaning it hasn't been "melted" by the Sun yet and will out gas a lot. Producing large, bright tails with greater potential for more then one tail. [b]2- ISON and the path will be precisely 180 degrees of Earths orbit:[/b] Meaning the comet will not appear to have the distinct curl and will appear to slice through the Sun. Multiple tails would appear like layered spears. Also means the amount of sun light reflected is at it's greatest. [b]3- ISON's curve in the tail will reflect different colors at different angles:[/b] There [u]might[/u] be a unique color display around the Sun. Especially with multiple tails reflecting different shades of color from different angles of reflection. Earth viewers are in-line of the concave like shape of tail. [b]4- ISON will been seen crossing the Sun under 6 hours:[/b] This is due to the very close approach causing rapid acceleration. This will also make a sharper tail closer to the comet itself. Almost able to see it move in the sky with the naked eye. We might get to see solar interference. [b]5- ISON [u]might[/u] explode on approach:[/b] Most likely when near the Sun. It is possible an explosion could occur on the opposite side where we can't see ISON crossing the Sun. The debris will spread out creating a crystal like reflection of light around the Sun. Possibly creating a large, colorful halo around the Sun, growing by the day until it fades away. This would produce a truly unique show in the sky. [b]6- ISON is already predicted to be the brightest comet in recorded history:[/b] That alone is worth the viewing. [b]7- ISON's tail will be subjected to Solar activity:[/b] As ISON will be really close to the Sun. Any flare/cme will displace the tail and produce unique apparitions of illuminated Solar and Cometary material mixing. Blue Star Kachina anyone?!?!?! In FACT, the ambient color from reflection might be blue hues on approach and turn to red hues after passing the Sun. Since ISON's orbit isn't parallel to Earths orbit, over all reflected angle would be determined by placement against the Sun and the Earth. Comet ISON may be BOTH the Blue Star Kachina AND the Red Star as well. Makes sense as the Blue Star must first pass. [/quote]

At the moment it is a faint object, visible only in sophisticated telescopes as a point of light moving slowly against the background stars. It doesn't seem much – a frozen chunk of rock and ice – one of many moving in the depths of space. But this one is being tracked with eager anticipation by astronomers from around the world, and in a year everyone could know its name.
By late November it will be visible to the unaided eye just after dark in the same direction as the setting Sun.

The comet that could outshine the MOON in 2013: Sky-gazers anticipating object so bright it could even be visible in daylight
Comet ISON is expected to draw millions into the dark to witness a flyby expected to outshine that of even Hale-Bopp (pictured) in 1997.
