They are trying to hard to say something, when there is nothing to be said. I still expect the comet to make it. I'm a romantic.

How often does SOHO take images? The last C2 image was at 17:48, 1:15 ago.

I just saw the 18:24 UT C2 image, and it doesn't look all that great. The tail nearest the sun has faded notably from the previous image.

According to the live stream and latest SOHO image it seems that ISON has broken up. Or at the very least very probable that it has.

I personally don't believe it.

Also, let's not be so dependent on the coronagraphs.

If you view the LASCO C3 images in movie mode (last 5 images) it definitely looks like the tail is dissipating.

Don't know if it's due to the solar wind or some other process.

Gads why do the Stereo coronagraphs look so poor compared to teh much much older SOHO ones - that image is really poor - like looking through frosted glass!
