    Comet hits the sun (video)

    Comet hits the sun, and other interesting tidbits. Including global warming lies. All in about 3 minutes.

    A Doomed Comet Just Fell Into the Sun. Here's the Video.

    By Chelsea Gohd 16 August 2019

    Yesterday (Aug. 15), the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) watched a comet meet its demise as the dirty snowball dove directly into the sun, according to Space Weather astronomer Tony Phillips.

    In the video captured by SOHO, you can see a number of objects zooming around the sun, which is blocked by an opaque disk to reduce glare. Seemingly right on top of the sun is Venus, which is bright and easy to spot. Left of center and not quite as bright as Venus, you can also see Mars. Just about 10 seconds into the video, the sun-bound comet suddenly becomes obvious and easy to detect.

    Staying on course, the comet continues to head directly for the sun, where it is charges through the sun's atmosphere and is ultimately destroyed (though, of course, you can't see that in the video). This comet is most likely a Kreutz sungrazer, according to Phillips.

    It never came close to the sun's "atmosphere." It burned up long before reaching it.
