What's this about a comet called 'Ison' coming our way?

Comet ISON is slowly approaching the sun (and getting closer to earth); it's likely paasage around the sun will be November 28th. At present, look low in the pre-dawn sky (looking east) with binoculars. ISON is likely to be more visible during it's return trip from behind the sun in early December. During the period from December 1st through the 17th, look for the comet in the east-southeast sky during the pre-dawn hours. Each succeeding day will place it higher in the sky above the horizon.
