  Sun Grazing Comet

Sun Grazing Comet
Image credit: SOHO (ESA & NASA)

Uploader comment: A "sun grazing" comet as caught by Solar and Heliospheric Observatory's (SOHO) Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO) C2 camera as it dived toward the sun on July 5 and July 6. SOHO is the overwhelming leader in spotting sungrazers, with over 2000 spotted to date, aided by the fact that the sun's bright light is itself blocked out by the coronograph.
