Between now and the end of the year, a rare treat will be streaking across the sky. Astronomers and amateur star-gazers alike are awaiting in anticipation for Comet ISON, which many are predicting will be bright enough to be seen with the naked eye.

John French is the interim director of MSU’s Abrams Planetarium. He says Comet ISON is visible now with a telescope. It will be at its brightest in late November and early December.
