Comet Lovejoy Still Visible (January 6, 2012)
Since Comet Lovejoy survived its remarkable, slingshot journey around the Sun (most notably on Dec. 15-16, it has regained a long tail (pointing away from the Sun) and was and is still visible to STEREO’s (Ahead) wide-angle imager (Dec. 17-29, 2011). Several faint particle clouds can be seen blowing way from the Sun as well.
SOHO began its Weekly Pick some time after sending a weekly image or video clip to the American Museum of Natural History (Rose Center) in New York City. There, the SOHO Weekly Pick is displayed with some annotations on a large plasma display.
If your institution would also like to receive the same Weekly Pick from us for display (usually in Photoshop or QuickTime format), please send your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
