Another Comet Heads for the Sun

That slightly elongated blob is a comet discovered by Jiangao Ruan. Will it survive it's passage of the Sun?

Stay tuned.

Here's an animation I made of it zipping along. The comet appears towards the middle of the right hand side. The two bright stars are delta and gamma Capricornii.
