Spoke too soon about ISON! CBET involving the TRAPPIST team shows the gas production rates of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) are increasing rapidly, up by a factor of two in 4 days.. mostly in the last 48 hours. They state "It looks like the outgassing of water was delayed in some way and now some deeper layer of ices may have been reached (this is theory). They currently do not think the comet is disrupting though. There are also now two new jets in CN and C2 bands.
