StoryfulNovember 16, 2013

Dr. Roy Spencer is Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and he filmed this impressive timelapse of Comet ISON rising over northeast Alabama on November 11. Speaking about the film, Dr. Spencer says: "I was finally able to see the comet for the first time in my Canon 10×30 binoculars. I could barely make out the faint tail. To find it, I’m now using the iPhone app “Star Walk”, which is absolutely amazing."
