Comet ISON flameout

It should have been named ICARUS. The comet ISON, earlier proclaimed “the comet of the century”, did not fare well at perihelion. Some sources are saying part of the nucleus survived, but it will be a ghost of its former self. It has been very interesting following this comet, with all the resources available on the interwebs, but I had hopes for a repeat of Hale-Bopp.

UPDATE: Comet ISON Fades Away Right Before Satellite’s Eyes
