Bright Sungrazing Comet

Source - Space Weather News for March 12, 2010:

Today, a newly discovered comet is plunging toward the sun for a close encounter it probably will not survive. The comet is rapidly vaporizing and appears very bright in coronagraph images from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). Visit for movies of the ongoing encounter and more information about the comet.
