Time-correlated animated GIF of ISON from NASA/STEREO

Thursday, November 28, comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) went through perihelion.  It's not clear what happened to it, yet, but the world had a ringside view thanks to NASA's STEREO spacecraft.  These spacecraft orbit the Sun.  Right now, they are opposite the Sun from Earth:


I took the animated GIFs I found at isoncampaign.org and time-correlated them into a single animated GIF, which you may find here:

If ISON does emerge somewhat intact, expect a plethora of images from amateur astronomers around the world.  Stay tuned...
