ScienceCasts: Sunset Comet

Visit http://science.nasa.gov/ for breaking science news.

Comet Pan-STARRS has survived its encounter with the sun and is now emerging from twilight in the sunset skies of the northern hemisphere. A NASA spacecraft monitoring the comet has beamed back pictures of a wild and ragged tail.
