Comet Death-Dives into Active Sun

13 May , 2011 by Video

The SOHO spacecraft coronagraph captured a sun-diving comet on May 10th and 11th that met its demise as it plunged into the Sun just as Old Sol released a huge flare. The two events were coincidental and not related, but spectacular to see.
