Another Comet Death Dive

Remember this nice bright Kreutz comet that passed through the STEREO spacecraft's H1A camera's field of view on the 2nd of January?

Well it didn't survive passage of the Sun (see animation here, via Spaceweather).

Another Sungrazer which I still have to analyse also did a death dive today and vaporized (see animation here). As I mentioned before there's a lot of Kerutz comets about at the moment (CometAl found another one just recently), so maybe I have a chance to catch one.
