VAPORIZED! ONE LESS COMET: As expected, yesterday's sungrazing comet discovered by STEREO did not survive its close encounter with the sun. One cosmic snowball went in--none came out. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) made this movie of the death plunge.


From spaceweather.com today.

I did Google a bit, and am curious as to approximately how many sungrazers per year are vaporized by the sun.

Does anyone have a guesstimate? Thanks in advance.

A new, very bright one in action. It seems there were too some fainter just in front.

Comet and a CME too.

Is it possible to save the "movie" ?
