Wouldn't this be amazing if it was still alive?

But wasn't it supposed to loop around the sun and come back out the same way it came in?

That is odd. It wouldn't let me save it without a password either. But here is a screenshot:

From KRP shot, not only do I see it, but it appears to be brightening as compared to the last image before nearest approach. Can someone here explain the physics or that brightening…or explain why I am not seeing the image correctly, which is quite possible as well.

Everyone else seems to have given up on ISON.
Here is where I found that image:

There is something odd here; in the shot, the position of the comet and the angular direction of the table seem consistent with the comet as it approached the sun…but shouldn't that brightening tale-like feature be pointing away from the sun (more than a 90 degree difference of position from what is now seen in the picture)?

It ain't over 'til the fat comet bellows.

And I don't think it ain't over yet!
