Disappeared Comet Dive Bombs

This week Comet Dive Bombs plunged into the sun. NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory ( SOHO) spacecraft shows a huge coronal mass ejection erupt from the sun’s surface shortly before a comet dove towards the sun and disappeared. The comet was first discovered by amateur astronomer Sergey Shurpakov. Astronomers think that the comet was part of the so-called Kreutz family of comets. Kreutz comets are comets in orbits that approach within a few hundred thousand miles of the sun.

Dwarf Planet Haumea

Researchers from European Southern Observatory (ESO) using a giant telescope in the Chilean find that Haumea, which is the one of the five dwarf planets of the SolarSystem, and one of its satellites, Hi’iaka, covered with brilliant layer of crystalline ice, formed as a result of the tidal gravitational forces and the decay of radioactive elements that make up these Plutoid.
