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.
