Update on Comet Lulin

cometComet Lulin has again lost its colorful ionized gas tail.  This has happened twice before in January and February, but quickly grew back.  Lulin’s heavier dust tail was not noticeably disturbed.  Check out Spaceweather.com here for a three-day sequence of photos that illustrate the changes.  These photos were taken by astrophotographer John Nassr in the Philippines.
