A couple of folks, yesterday and today, were inquiring as to when Comet ISON, C/2012 S1 (ISON), will be visible over New Hampshire.

I assume they meant naked-eye visible. The comet has been visible telescopically for just over a year — with ~9 week hiatus between May – July when the glare of the Sun was between us and the comet.

It won’t be naked eye visible, even if you have exceptional eyesight till later this month, i.e., October. Early November is more promising. To start with it might just be visible at dawn. After perihelion, assuming it survives its very close sungrazing passage, it should be visible, vividly, throughout the night during December — with luck.

I am doing presentations on ISON at the Taylor Community (in Laconia) and at the Alton Public Library during the first week in November. I will post more details soon. So, if you are interested, come to one of those. Would love to see you. I am also speaking at Portsmouth Rotary, but that is after Thanksgiving.
