The Sungrazer citizen science project, sungrazing and near-Sun comets, #ISON, ESA/NASA SOHO and STEREO images, the Sun, and more! (Tweets by Karl Battams)
Very pretty CME blasted out from the Sun a few hours ago, as seen by @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C2
Wow, that bright @ESA @NASA SOHO/LASCO Kreutz looks impressive! Maybe mag 3 or so, but will soon just be vapor...
We have a new Kreutz sungrazing comet in @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C3. Should get quite bright!
Behold the beauty of comet #ISON in SOHO/SWAN! ... OK, not beautiful but still pretty cool!
This bright sungrazing comet in @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C3 is now just hours away from total vaporization
Here comes another one! Another fairly bright Kreutz sungrazer racing to its demise in @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C3
Unfortunate, yet fully expected: the recent bright Sungrazer vaporized as it approached the Sun in @ESA/@NASA SOHO
In the latest @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C3 images, the new Sungrazer continues to shine bright!
One of the brightest Sungrazers we've seen in a long time in @ESA/@NASA SOHO/LASCO C3. Will get VERY bright...
On Dec 12 of this year, @NASA STEREO-A will view Mercury transit the Sun! Cool!
This 2003 "newspaper" article about UFOs in SOHO data hangs framed in my office. I love it!
This is awesome: There's a small Kreutz-sungrazer comet in the same images as #PanSTARRS!
This really does not get old! Another breathtaking image of #PanSTARRS from @NASA STEREO-B
CME meets comet (maybe) in this image of #PanSTARRS taken by the NASA STEREO-B satellite
One parting shot before #PanSTARRS set below the horizon
While I fight w/ my movie software, here's another image processed slightly differently
Check. This. Out! WOW! Comet #PanSTARRS just a few hours ago in STEREO HI-1B
Here's a basic "pretty" picture I made of #PanSTARRS in STEREO (img date: Mar 10, 2013 ~20UT)
Managed to slightly enhance striae in Comet #PanSTARRS' tail, but think I can still do better. Will keep trying...
The STEREO-B spacecraft is not only watching Comet #PanSTARRS -- it sees both Earth and Mercury right now!
