from guardianlv.com: Comet ISON appears really done for this time. It was first reported to have been destroyed when it passed by the sun. That information was apparently to some degree exaggerated, but it appears this time that the comet’s demise is the real thing. Fragments of the object which had been called the “comet of the century” passed through the viewing scope located at the Solar Observatory in the wake of the comets nearby encounter with the Sun. After it passed by, the bright spot which had endured started to grow dim.
