Get the News About Comet ISON

A comet streaks through the sky

By Dr. Lisa Will, Fleet Astronomer

Comet ISON is getting brighter in the sky, and it should hopefully become visible to the naked eye soon. If you want to know where to locate it in the sky or learn more about Comet ISON, some useful resources are listed below. 

Plus, the Fleet is hosting a Coffee & Comets event on Tuesday, November 26, early in the morning (because the comet can be viewed before sunrise). Visit our Events page for more information.
