Comet Lovejoy exits the sun in these SDO images (video)

But the comet has not re-emerged in the COR1 images yet, looking at the SDO images, it might just be an organized debris cloud that will evaporate by the time the it passes into the COR1 field of view.
Video showing comet Lovejoy entering the STEREO COR1B imager and not coming out (yet). Low resolution Beacon images.
Congratulations to the STEREO and SDO team for some fantastic images and science! See Karl Battams page here for updates.
