Will The March 2012 Planetary Alignments Produce The Solar Event NASA's Been Harping About?
Comet Lovejoy should be the little white dot near the bottom, left of the 2011. It will be on Stereo-A HI1 in a few hours as well.

I don't know, but, NASA keeps talking about a damaging Solar Event and the early March Alignments look intimidating. The alignment part begins around the 7:48 minute mark.

Don't know about an 'end time', but, the way NASA keeps harping about a solar event makes you wonder if they know something. What's the old saying, 'if it doesn't happen it will miss a damn good chance'...

You mean HAARPING. Very good possibility.

Actually, the odds of a large solar event during this period is very good. That doesn't mean it will be Earth directed though.

I like my odds.

Oh well, JPL has re-listed the Physical Parameter Table here: [link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

That makes it not much larger than it was originally.
comet nuclear magnitude M2 20.6 mag
comet total magnitude M1 15.5 mag

That makes it somewhere around 0.5 to 0.333 km.

Oh well, it still should put on a very nice typical Sunglazer show as it gets vaporized by old Sol.

It'a going to fry...shortly.

Odds on something visible appearing on the other side?
 Quoting: TBar1984


Heh, define "visible." I think there's a chance you could spot a faint cloud (ala Elenin) at its predicted position once it gets sufficiently far away from the sun using a wide field refractor and a very deep exposure. Beyond that though... not good I'd say.

 Quoting: TBar1984


I just saw that, I may have been too pessimistic about its survival. That it vanishes isn't terribly surprising; just as it only became visible in the frame when it got very close to the sun, it only remained visible in the frame when it was close to the sun. It's just not intrinsically bright enough to be visible unless it's very, very close to the sun. The real question will be how bright it looks once STEREO-B shows it re-emerging on the coronagraph.

Here's the close-up;



That looks like a pretty big puff right at the end.
We'll have to wait for Soho & Stereo to see how much is left.
