Return of the Great Comet - C/2012 S1 ISON | Slooh Space Camera @Slooh

Screenshot taken from software Cartes du Ciel showing position of Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) 30 days after perihelion as visible from Zagreb, Croatia, at 16:00 CET (15:00 UTC).

[audio cuts out several times in this live broadcast from the Canary Islands]

Join Slooh's Paul Cox to watch the first new images of Comet ISON as it returns to our pre-dawn skies. If the sungrazing comet survives its close encounter with the Sun later this year, it may become one of the "Great Comets" - with tails arching over the skies.
