Those are not my words, but those of blogger Phil Plait (as reported on the Universe Today website), who also wrote this on Nov. 29th:

For those keeping score at home, it got bright, then it faded, then it got all smeared out, then it came around the Sun smeared out, and then it seemed to get its act together again.

If we knew what was going on, there’d be nothing more to learn.
