This comet will make a close approach to the sun around November 28th, passing within 750,000 miles of the sun's visible surface and may be visible in the sky as its ice sublimates from the sun's heat. Although some or most of the comet may erode, Comet ISON will likely continue its journey outward from the sun, passing by Earth in December. It will continue to be visible at twilight throughout the month of December, 2013.
