STEREO Images of Sungrazing Comet

This is the comet and its tail as observed by NASA’s twin STEREO spacecraft between March 12 and 14, 2010. The left side is STEREO B (orbiting behind the Earth) and the right is STEREO A (ahead). The outer images are from Cor2, the middle ones are from Cor1 and the inner ones of the solar disk are from the EUVI instruments onboard STEREO. Credit: NASA. UC Berkeley
