NASA captured this awesome video of a comet being "eaten" by the Sun after its orbit brings it too close to the star to escape. According to the Daily Mail, "The space agency's solar-focused agency - Solar and Helioscopic Observatory (SOHO) - captured footage of the Kreutz Sungrazer as it made its fateful approach."
A SOHO spokeswoman said NASA "gathered the footage using a Coronagraph, which blocks the brightest object in an image."
Watch the footage below. More details at the Daily Mail.
