Deep Impact Sends Back Movie Of Comet ISON

Yes Deep Impact is still doing its thing, flying around the solar system and with its main mission over long ago the mission managers used its onboard cameras to make this very nice movie of comet ISON. Comet ISON is still a long way out but is pretty darn bright for a comet at this distance, so it's not unreasonable to think that this comet will be putting on a spectacular show when it gets closer to the sun by the end of the year. Of course, it might just fizzle out, it's happened in the past to other predicted 'great comets'
