For those with a tablet, we Astronomers can follow along and manipulate the angles of the celestial canvas with a swipe of the finger via Android & Apple apps. I use several myself and they are really cool. But those without a tablet, here is a neat simulation of Comet ISON for your laptops.
This image above, shows why ISON will be an early morning comet - coming and going. Comets at different angles, (perpendicular to this one), are viewable at sunset and beyond.
This on-line simulation enables the user to travel time or sight and path angles...clearly demonstrating ISONs relation to the Earth and why it's where it is in our skies. This is part of the bigger "Solar System Simulator" that is neat all on it's own...
