The Great & Spectacular Comet McNaught

Update: Watch the Great Comet Via Lasco Imagery

This is an animation of the most recent images from the SOHO spacecraft's LASCO C3 camera.
Expect it to load slowly.
Comet C/2006 P1 (McNaught) will be visible through Jan. 15. The first SOHO images of the comet can be seen in our Comet McNaught Viewer's Guide.
This real-time movie, which shows the most recent 48 hours of solar activity, is updated every hour if satellite communications permit. The image is generated by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft.
Other animation sizes and formats are avaible at the SOHO site.
