I got up really early to try to photograph the Comet ISON. It wasn’t easy locating it. I had binoculars and I scoured the sky looking for it, but never could say for sure I’d seen it. It wasn’t until I uploaded my frames from the morning that I felt I captured it. There’s a tiny green dot with with fuzzy edges just where I’ve placed a label ISON.
I believe that’s it with Spica above it to the right.

As my friend Marsha just said, ” Seeing it compels me to try again”. I totally agree!

  1. Hope it gets brighter and bigger as it gets closer to the sun. The comet was just below and to the left of Spica on Monday morning so you probably got it.
