Comet ISON blazes through the night sky on its dangerous journey toward the sun in this great photo recently sent to SPACE.com.

Astrophotographer Adam Block captured this amazing image of the comet using a SBIG STX16803 CCD camera with a 32-inch Schulman Telescope atop Mount Lemmon from the University of Arizona

Other bodies orbiting in the Oort Cloud, or a passing rock, brown dwarf etc.. probably gave it a gravitational or physical nudge and caused it to spiral in.
