Comet Takes Death-Dive Into the Sun

I have posted similar videos before, but this may be the first in 3D.

Video embedded below.

"Solar physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, have captured for the first time the collision of a comet with the sun. "We believe this is the first time a comet has been tracked in 3-D space this low down in the solar corona," said Claire Raftery who worked with colleagues Juan Carlos Martinez-Oliveros, Samuel Krucker and Pascal Saint-Hilaire."
