Ever since Comet ISON became visible to the naked eye, a lot has happened in the last few days. First of all, an amateur astronomer has captured an amazing photo of Comet ISON. The picture is shown below.
Second of all, Comet ISON has appeared to have grown two wings! Scientists believe that these "wings" are actually fragments that broke off the comet's nucleus, and that caused the comet to brighten. However, Karl Battams of NASA disagrees. He says that the wings look too symmetrical to have been caused by nucleus fragmentation and that it may have be that comet is shooting off dust or a change in solar wind may have occurred.
I like astronomy.
