  • It's funny how a snowball like structure can get close enough to the sun to even hit it. In other words, science is trying to fuck with us, there is more to the story, either a) Sun is not as hot at the surface as we'd think, or b) A comet is no fucking snowball...

    • @velocity73R SOHO watched as a fairly bright comet dove towards the Sun in a white streak and was not seen again after its close encounter (May 10-11, 2011). The comet, probably part of the Kreutz family of comets, was discovered by amateur astronomer Sergey Shurpakov. In this coronagraph the Sun (represented by a white circle) is blocked by the red occulting disk so that the faint structures in the Sun's corona can be discerned. Interestingly, a coronal mass ejection blasted out to the right ju More..

  • I was half-expecting the impact to make it grow like at the beginning of "The Fifth Element"...

  • Horseshit. Solar flare. No way a comet that is smaller than the moon, and assuming smaller than the USA would ever make a reaction like that on the sun. Seriously do your research people.

  • Now that was cool. And to think this kind of thing happens everyday and unless you have a microscope you would never know! Truly the universe is a vast and amazing place

      #1 - This post is a just a joke.
      #2 - I think you meant 'have a telescope'
      #3 - please use that telescope to look directly at the sun.

    • @TommyBeast If he looked through a telescope at the sun because someone on the Internet told him to do so, he has much bigger problems than can be solved by me not telling him to look through a telescope.

      You forgot:
      Don't run with scissors
      Don't play with fire
      Don't stick forks in electrical outlets.
      and don't swim right after a meal.

  • I'm not buying this.

    Putting on my LL Astronomy hat:

    Its hard for me to understand how a low-density object typically no more than 40km across, can create what looks like a massive coronal mass ejection, that spans about a quarter of the circumference of the sun (~680k miles)

    something is not adding up here.
