Comet ISON 2012 S1 Visible With Unaided Eye

Comet ISON can now be seen with the unaided eye in moderately light polluted skies.  It is difficult to see.  One needs to know exactly where to look in the skies.  The coma is moderately easy to spot.  The tail is barely visible.  My location was a short distance outside of Orlando, FL, at the corner of Travistock Lakes Blvd and Narcoossee Road. 

These photos use camera settings that approximate my personal vision.  As a 59 year old, I'm not surprised that others report better views with the unaided eye.   These photos were taken at 5:48 am November 23, 2013, Eastern Time.
