A Huge Comet Nailed The Sun This Weekend

Sorry Michael Bay, the cosmos has you beat again.

Here’s some amazing video: this weekend a comet, a big one, hit the sun. Well, grazed it anyway, or got close to it. I don’t know that a huge dirty space snowball can get THAT close to the sun. Which is why the coronal ejection on this video, which looks fucking awesome and like the comet punched a hole through the sun, is probably just a well-timed coincidence. If there is a God he likes to make this shit dramatic.
