Catching the tail of Comet ISON

Back to article | Note about images

ISON comet viewed through NASA's Hubble Telescope in April 2013.

Eventually, astronomers expect we will be able to view the ISON comet with the naked eye. However, here it is viewed through the Hubble telescope in April 2013. This image was taken in visible light. Blue false color was added to bring out details in comet structure.
