Comet brighter than moon to be visible in 2013

Comet ISON, discovered recently by Russian scientists, will be visible in India towards the end of 2013 and experts have said that the comet which will be seen above the western horizon after sunset is likely to be visible to naked eye and could well be brighter than the moon.

“How a comet will behave is generally unpredictable. However, with its present positioning, it seems that it will be as bright as the moon and visible towards the end of 2013 above the western horizon,” Arvind Paranjpye, director of Mumbai-based Nehru Centre, said.
