NASA : Comet Lovejoy Survives Close Encounter with Sun.

Comet Lovejoy Survives Close Encounter with SunNOTE: This
video loops 3 times. Comet Lovejoy survives its encounter with the
sun. The comet is seen here exiting from behind the right side of the
sun, after an hour of travel through its closest approach to the sun.
By tracking how the comet interacts with the sun's atmosphere, the
corona, and how material from the tail moves along the sun's magnetic
field lines, solar scientists hope to learn more about the corona.
