Ison-No

Spica in the Constellation Virgo
Wednesday morning, I did set my alarm and got up in time and went back out to gooseberry again to see if I could see our capture the comet Ison. Well again, I did not capture any pictures of the comet, due to increased ambient light on the horizon and the comet is getting closer to the horizon. I did capture one image winter meteor located at the very top.

The Sky Looking East with a Meteor near the Top, Probably Leonid


My plan is now to wait to see what happens after Ison passes around the sun, hopefully, it will not be destroyed and will appear in the beginning of December much brighter in the sky and more easily located.
