Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) appears next to planet Mercury in the morning twilight, on its way to the Sun, reaching to within a solar diameter of the Sun's surface (on 2013 Nov. 28). This unusual sungrazer comet is captured here rising over Gran Canaria Island, as seen from the Teide Observatory on Tenerife.
