On May 10, a huge comet named Kreutz sungrazer was on its way when the Sun swallowed it.
NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite spotted this unusual phenomenon.
A video captured by SOHO shows a bright object plunging into the Sun before it disappears forever.
These are comets that were part of a larger body that broke up at least 1,000 years ago and, as the name suggests, hover near the surface of the Sun.

Thousands of these comets have been discovered, but most end up being swallowed by the Sun. The most recent one was no different.
Space Weather said:
Astronomer Karl Battams spent some time analyzing the most recent comet plunge.
He said the comet was likely “tens of metres” in diameter.
