An unnamed comet appears to be on an impact course with the sun. It should strike the sun within the next two or three hours.

  1. Hi Van, any updates on this comet?

    • Hi, Goods, I updated the post with a remarkable video showing an earth facing CME erupt on the opposite side of the sun as the comet plunged to its solar doom. Causality is unlikely, but it is certainly an interesting coincidence.

  2. Wonder if this comet had anything to do with this: Deadly earthquake rocks Spanish town
