Vaporizing comet: incoming! March 12, 2010

SpaceWeather News for March 12, 2010

Today, a newly discovered comet is plunging toward the sun for a close encounter it probably will not survive. The comet is rapidly vaporizing and appears very bright in coronagraph images from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

Visit SpaceWeather for movies of the ongoing encounter and more information about the comet. #


As Above So Below, anyone? Wonder who the 'newly discovered' comet represents? Whomever it may be, he/she is performing a phantastical impression of Icarus.
