ISON’s green color comes from the gases surrounding its icy nucleus. Jets spewing from the comet’s core probably contain cyanogen (CN: a poisonous gas found in many comets) and diatomic carbon (C2). Both substances glow green when illuminated by sunlight in the near-vacuum of space.

The comet is zooming within the orbit of Mars, heading toward a crucial rendezvous with the sun on Nov. 28. Get your telescope ready!
