ISON image by Hubble, April 2013 (STScI) The Hubble Space Telescope has taken its first images of a comet that has the potential to be a brilliant naked-eye object in night skies late this year. The Hubble images of Comet ISON, taken April 10, show that the comet is already active, with one strong jet of gas and dust visible even though the comet is nearly as far from the Sun as Jupiter. Comet ISON will pass close to the Sun late this year, and some astronomers believe the object could be one of the brightest to be seen from Earth in a century.
