It is Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), simply dubbed Comet ISON in the media and was discovered on the 21st day of September, 2012 “beyond the orbit of Jupiter, and almost immediately created a sensation in the astronomical community. The comet holds the promise of becoming so bright that it may be visible in the daytime sky.”
