Comet ISON is now visible in binoculars, and has a double tail.
The double tail is not that unusual. Many comets sport two tails.
Only a few weeks till the comet makes its closest approach to the Sun, it is appears that ISON is not going to give us much of a show, though the knowledge that will be gained from it will still be substantial.
