Comet ISON

This image reveals a pin-head sized view of an object which is actually the comet ISON.

Hardware components of the orbital outpost and Earth's atmosphere above the horizon take up most of the image. Most of the other bright dots in the sky are heavenly bodies. The comet is distinguishable by its tail.
