Another View of Tony Hoffman's Kreutz Comet
The comet brightens rapidly, then evaporates before it passes behind the Sun. I've made a longer animation that shows the comet evaporating (1.5 Mb). I posted the animation on YouTube (see below), but for some reason the final frames don't come up on YouTube.
Images form the stereo COR2A instrument were stacked in ImageJ and warm green-blue LUT applied.
