Please recall that C2 had different contrast than C3. What is fainter in the C2 image will look brighter in the C3.

Take a look at the move titled "Exclusive views of Comet 96P/Machholz swinging past the Sun" in the following link.

http://198.118.248.97/bestofsoho/Movies/comets.html

notice how the tail reforms after the comet has passed the sun.

We cannot ignore the decreasing velocity of the comet as it leaves the vicinity of the sun, and how later on the solar wind takes over to determine the direction and formation of a tail.

Whatever is left of ISON is forming a new tail and its started it swing around to point back away from the Sun:

Amazing Mike B. I hope NASA is wrong about ISON. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time they had egg in their face.

Awesome C3 23:18, now we wait to see if the tail changes directions. If it does, then there may still be a little nucleus left after all.

Note that in the C3 image above the comet is dimmer than Antares (measured via the blooming spikes)

Most of the main stream media new organizations are reporting its demise based on what NASA has told them. I wonder if tomorrow there will be a retraction from nasa. We can only hope.

I think if you watch this you can seen how destroyed the comet really is

C3 movie

The final disruption occurs at approx 17:40 UT

I suspect the NASA boys wanted to get off for turkey and at the first hint of "pooof" shut up shop yelling "look its gone"

... which in terms of a specticle is roughly right .. its now for comet nerds ... say no more
