RIP Comet Ison..

image

After dipping into the Sun’s atmosphere, the comet slowly faded from a raging ball of ice and rock down to a small point of light.. then disappeared to never re-emerge. I had hoped its tail would survive and be visible, but the combination of new solar storms/mass ejections along with the fact that it evaporated very early on during its close pass to the Sun has left its tail unprotected from solar wind and obscured by its strong glare. Sigh..

That hurt my heart.
