The next few days will be the last opportunity to view comet ISON before its close approach to the sun on November 28th.

Here’s where to look near the south east horizon an hour before dawn. Use the planets Mercury and Saturn as your guide. You can aim your phone stargazing app at the horizon to find these planets, if you are unfamiliar with where to look. On November 23rd, comet ISON will be about 7-10 degrees above the horizon, depending on where you live in the US. (Ten degrees is one clenched fist (GIF, 133 KB), tilted vertically and held at arms length away.)

Nov 24: Find comet ISON to the right of Saturn and Mercury — only 4-7 degrees above the horizon, tho’ its tail may be more visible facing away from the sun.

Nov 25: Comet ISON is 2-5 degrees below Saturn and Mercury. The planets are very close together, in conjunction!

Here’s a recent image of comet ISON. Your binocular or naked eye view will not show this much detail, but you’ll be able to say you saw the comet, before its date with the sun!

"Hidden manna from the promised "White Stone", Rev 2:17 P1446:5, 131:3.3 . . . It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; TO SEE NO SIN WHERE THERE IS SIN. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your misery BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One. 131:3.4 (1447.1) “Cheerfulness and gladness are the rewards of deeds well done and to the glory of the Immortal. No man can rob you of the liberty of your own mind. When the faith of your religion has emancipated your heart, when the mind, like a mountain, is settled and immovable, then shall the peace of the soul flow tranquilly like a river of waters. Those who are sure of salvation are forever free from lust, envy, hatred, and the delusions of wealth. While faith is the energy of the better life, nevertheless, must you work out your own salvation with perseverance. If you would be certain of your final salvation, then make sure that you sincerely seek to fulfill all righteousness. Cultivate the assurance of the heart which springs from within and thus come to enjoy the ecstasy of eternal salvation. ~~ Urantia Book Paper 131 ~~
