The newly discovered C/2012 S1 (ISON) has been in the news since its discovery in September. Comet ISON could potentially develop a spectacular tail in Fall 2013 as it approaches the Sun -- or it could break up into pieces. Find a picture of this comet, which currently appears as a dim spot in the sky, at http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap121001.html.
