Comprehensive Update/Prediction on Comet ISON

Hey Space Placers!

Happy Father's Day to all of you Dads out there......If you are reading my blog I hope you have the opportunity to involve your kids in your interest in astronomy as it is a family friendly activity.....

Here is a link to the most comprehensive update and plainly stated prediction for Comet ISON that I have seen to date. John Bortle is Mr. Comet within amateur astronomy circles and when he speaks we listen.

My two cents is that we will see Comet ISON is some manner and most likely naked eye when the comet comes around from the Sun. It will be a matter of how bright and how big. I'd love to see another repeat of Comet Ikeya-Seki in 1965 which I didn't get to see and regret not having done so.
