Go Back

Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) captured by the SOHO spacecraft as it dives in to the sun's corona on November 28, 2013, and in a dramatic action a fraction of the icy body returns from the hell the next day. I edited this stunning sequence of images released by SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory), leveled, enlarged and sharpened them for full HD viewing.
