Comet ISON, Mars, and Regulus on October 12, 2013

Norbert Mrozek was able to capture this image of ISON, the planet Mars, and Regulus on October 12, 2013 at 03:11UT.

I took the liberty to remove some of that white haze that appears within the photo to come up with this result.

Here’s the same updated image but rotated 90 degrees clockwise with some crude imagery from Stellarium on the right overlapping duplicate imagery from the left. Comet ISON appears on top, with the planet Mars below it, and Regulus on the bottom corner.
