Eye in the Sky

Some part of ISON seems to have survived everyone is waiting to see how big this  piece is and will it become easily visible in the coming days.

Saturn, Mercury and a thin crescent Moon are low in the south eastern sky just before sunrise. They form an isosceles triangle.

The first joint US/Argentinian rocket firing is made. The rocket was launched from the range at Chamical near to Cordova carrying a payload on instruments to collect data on the ionosphere.
