The District Science Centre here has made arrangements for school students and the public to view the comet ISON, which will be close to the Sun on November 28.

According to a release, telescopes will be used to view the comet when it is visible in the sky between 4.30 am and 6 am.

ISON will reach its closest point to the Sun on November 28, which is nearly 18 lakh km from the Sun.

On December 26 this year, this comet is likely to be approximately 6.3 crore km from the Earth, close enough to be seen as a bright comet.

The District Science Officer said that there was no chance of the comet colliding with the Earth.

If the comet survives its trip around the Sun, there is a good chance that it will be incredibly bright and easily visible with the naked eye in the Northern Hemisphere.
