I'm sure everyone knows about comet ISON and how huge it could be. The comet started it's 36+ hour journey around the sun a few hours ago. It had about a 40% chance of surviving its trip around the sun. Just as it started to circle the sun, the sun fired a massive (CME) *Coronal Mass Ejection* directly at it. Which is exactly what happened to comet Encke back in 07' which was also directly hit by a CME.
ISON still stands a great chance of making it around the sun but the chances of the sun hitting two comets in a row with direct CME's is almost inconceivable. It's as if the Sun know what it's doing.
Here is a picture of the CME and ISON
if ISON makes it, we are in for a show, It could be x5 brighter than the moon.
