Astronomers were able to detect a cloud of dust particles that remained after the destruction of the first Russian comet known as comet Elenin or C/2010 X1. This comet crashed into multiple fragments in September when it reached its closest point to the Sun. The first faint diffuse cloud discovered Italian amateur astronomers Ernesto Guido, Giovanni Sostero and their British colleague Nick Howes. Then a more successful picture received an Italian Rolando Ligustri. On the night of 21 to 22 October at the observatory ISON-NM were repeated observations of the comet, and the movement of this cloud has been confirmed.
