The Hubble Telescope has Caught an Early Glimpse of the ‘Comet of the Century’

On April 10th the Hubble Telescope took a picture of what most skywatchers hope is the comet of the century. Comet ISON is a large iceball that is 394 million miles from Earth. That is just inside the orbit of Jupiter. Right now the comet can only be seen with a telescope but in November it should get much brighter. Skywatchers are hoping when the comet swings around the sun in late November it could be brighter than Venus or even as bright as the full moon. The last comet that came into view was only seen in the Southern Hemisphere but when comet ISON comes by it will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, which means Americans should get an eyeful during this year’s winter holiday season.
