Have a look at this amazing footage from Solar Stormwatch of comet C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS) being bombarded by a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the Sun last March! Thanks to Julia Wilkinson, one of our fantastic volunteers, for recommending this as a Daily Zooniverse article. If you would like to recommend something for me to post you can use the hashtag #dailyzoo on all Zooniverse Talk pages or on Twitter.
