NASA : Sun stripped Comet’s trail [video]

From Nasa site : “On
April 20, 2007, the comet had just dipped inside the orbit
of Mercury, perilously close to the sun, when a solar eruption
struck and literally tore the comet’s tail off. This surely
has happened to comets before, but for the first time in history
a spacecraft was watching. NASA’s STEREO-A probe recorded
a fantastic movie of the collision.”

This looks amazing but not unbeliavable 🙂
