A new version of the movie made from images taken by STEREO-A (orbiting well ahead of Earth) show Comets ISON and Encke for a longer period as they approach the Sun. The interaction between their tails and the solar wind is really interesting.

We should have some fine views from STEREO-A and STEREO-B and other NASA missions as ISON passes close to the Sun!

Clear skies, Alan
