It's probably a Klingon Bird of Prey with heat shields at maximum. Judging by the direction it was slingshotting around the sun, I think it was trying to go back to the future but it probably failed due to some warp drive malfunction....

what i want to know is:

why is a trail BEtween THE comet and the sun??? isnt it suppose to be in front of the comet away from the sun?

or even more, why the trail is not disintegrated instantly? i meant, it is dust basically touching the sun, what is this dust made of?

Wow that's quite a claim..I've been trying to figure out what you mean by that and haven't had much luck yet..

very interesting theory

edit to add: I think it's interesting that Sagittarius is located in the Galactic Center of the Milky way and there are sites out there that associate it with 2012

[...]With 22 stars in this constellation known to have planets, Sagittarius has more known planetary host stars than any other constellation.

..The Milky Way is at its densest near Sagittarius, as this is where the galactic center lies

..Sagittarius A*, is associated with a supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

the 'WOW! signal' originated from Sagittarius..

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

I'm still not sure what you mean by the Arrow of Sagittarius
I'm aware that in the picture below it resembles an arrow..so I'm assuming that you consider it to be some sort of spacecraft?

Re: Comet Lovejoy survives perihelion!
So, what is this comets orbit???
Using jpl, go back to the year 1600 (which is the farthest back you can go).
The comet is over 1000AU from the sun on that date.
But, they say it should have been passing the sun near that date.

wtf?

1400UT:[...]Lovejoy is now visible again from the ground! And indeed it's actually more visible now than it was before it plunged through the solar atmosphere! (So much for the comet I said would never survive perihelion...) A multitude of ground-based observations of Comet Lovejoy are being reported now, and for the lucky folks in the Southern Hemisphere, this comet is just going to become easier and easier to see.

So what surprised could Lovejoy have for us? It's hard to say as we've already been well off-the-mark in several respects..

got this one off of Spaceweather..

EUVI_B_Lovejoy

"Why the wiggles?" wonders Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab. "We're not sure. There might be some kind of helical motion going on. Perhaps we're seeing material in the tail magnetically 'clinging' to coronal loops and moving with them. [Coronal loops are huge loops of magnetism that emerge from the sun's surface and thread the sun's atmosphere.] There are other possibilities too, and we will certainly investigate those!"

COMET LOVEJOY IN THE MORNING: Noted astronomer John Bortle urges observers (especially in the southern hemisphere) to "begin searching for Comet Lovejoy's bright tail projecting up out of the morning twilight beginning at dawn. The tails of some of the major sungrazing comets have been extraordinarily bright. Comet Lovejoy's apparition has been so bizarre up to this point that it is difficult to anticipate just what might happen next ... [including] the exact sort of tail it might unfurl in the morning sky."

Re: Comet Lovejoy survives perihelion!
This past week, a rather mundane comet made big headlines when it survived a whisker's (in cosmic terms) distance pass by the Sun, core completely intact. In the days leading up to the predicted close shave, most experts expected Comet Lovejoy to be vaporized into nothing. This weekend, many of these same people were eating their words, going to show that, in science, there is no such thing as certainty.

So, now that it has gripped the astronomical public's imagination, many skywatchers are now asking 'how can I see the comet?' Well, it is, in theory, quite easy.

Right now, Comet Lovejoy, while not all that far from the Sun, is positioned so that it can be seen and/or photographed from the Southern Hemisphere, where is which it will remain for about a month or so. However, come mid January, the comet will make an appearance in the Northern Hemisphere.
