Observation Calendar and Table
We have collected observing plans from professional astronomers observing Comet ISON to facilitate collaborations and enhance the scientific output of everyone's observations of the comet. The observation plans are summarized below in a calendar and table. Note that only day precision is given and the dates are specified in UT. All the details are listed in each observation entry.
You can subscribe to the calendar with Google using the "+Google Calendar" button below, or you can subscribe to the iCal formatted calendar.
If you have observation plans, or even observations in hand, fill out our observation form and e-mail it to Michael Kelley to have them added to the campaign. You can also send updates to Mike at any time.View blank form View example form
These plans are voluntary and can change at any time, can be weathered out, may be affected by spacecraft glitches, etc. This website will not host any data, but will show some of the pretty pictures, of which we hope there will be many. Please be patient while astronomers observe this important comet and make the most of this opportunity.
