NASA has captured video of a comet hitting the Sun and the footage is getting plenty of buzz online. One viewing is all it takes to see why.


Video from: YouTube.com

The footage was captured by NASAís Solar & Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) on May 10 and May 11 and posted to NASA Goddardís Flickr page. It shows what is believed to be a comet from the Kreutz family hurtling into the Sun. The Kreutz family of objects is believed to have originated from a single large comet that came apart centuries ago. The Kreutz comets were discovered by amateur astronomer Sergey Shrupakov.
The Sun itself is obscured in the video and represented by a white circle. According to NASA, the sun is blocked by a red disc so that "faint structures in the Sunís corona can be discerned." Consequently, the actual impact of the comet canít bee seen.
What appears to be an explosion caused by the impact is actually a coincidental coronal mass ejection which occured just as the comet was approaching the Sun. Scientists have not yet found a connection between these mass ejections and comet impacts.
