Stars Need To Eat Too: Sun Eating A Comet

April 12, 2010


This is allegedly a picture of the sun eating a comet. Of course, it could be a picture from inside a birth canal for all I know. WHICH IS EVERYTHING. Yep yep yep -- that's a vagina if I've ever seen one (I haven't is the thing).

The destruction of a comet as it approached the sun was caught on camera Saturday by a long-lived space observatory. The comet, a stranger to astronomers, is now doomed to anonymous obscurity.

The comet's death plunge was recorded by the sun-watching Solar and Heliospheric Observatory as the previously unknown icy wanderer barreled down on the sun from cosmic parts unknown

The comet appeared in SOHO images on Friday but by early this morning it had disappeared entirely

Damn, can you believe the sun actually eats comets? I always pictured him as more of a Star Crunch kind of guy. Little Debbie joke! Oh you've still got it, GW, you've still got it.

Thanks to Spartacus, who once ate an asteroid but not the one that killed all the dinosaurs off. Geez, thanks for nothing Sparty.
