According to a news release from the University of Arizona's HiRISE project, NASA has released the first HiRISE images of comet ISON, the so-called "comet of the century." Last Sunday, the space agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) positioned itself to aim its High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera at ISON, as the comet zoomed by Mars on its journey into the inner Solar System.
