Comet C/2012 S1 ISON in the morning before the sunrise.

Scketch made at La Hita´s Observatory in La Puebla de Almoradiel, Toledo (Spain).
5:04 UT November 13th, 2013

Sketch made with graphite on white paper, looking through 12×80 binoculars (field 4,2º)
The sky was really clear and pristine, relative humidity 70%.

Altought beautiful Zodiacal light shines over the east horizon, the comet was easily highlighted in the background of stars.

  1. Leonor,

    Beautiful capture of this early morning comet in Virgo.
    I’m hopeful it lives up to expectations and brightens dramatically.
