Comet Lovejoy Spotted Plunging Into Sun
The NASA/ESA SOHO satellite now sees Comet Lovejoy, too. Here is a view from the C3 coronagraph. The comet is not yet seen by C2, but will be soon. The NASA STEREO spacecrafts are already seeing the comet and NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory will see it tomorrow, December 15, 2011.
