Update on Comet ISON

I haven't seen much in the main-stream media on Comet ISON lately, but EarthSky recently published an article (June 13) providing an update, and includes an April 13 photo from the Hubble telescope. The article notes that, assuming ISON survives its brush with the Sun in November, it will be brightest in November, but so close to the Sun that it will probably not be observable without using special equipment. December should be the best month for seeing ISON.
