Revisiting the Comet Crash

False colour image of Bo Zhou's Comet in the STEREO COR2A imager on 21 October (compare with the H1A image from 19 October).

Bo Zhou's comet did not survive its encounter with the Sun. The animation below shows it evaporating as it comes close to the Sun. You can download a 4 meg AVI here.

Compare this animation with the low resolution STEREO COR2 animations: very low resolution, low resolution.
