They are further from Earth so bandwith is lower and they can get only low res images in real time.

That picture from Steve looks like it survived! But that is over an hour ago?

Well, if it's gone, those of us who watched it this past month really saw something.

That looks like an artifact or particle strike. Can't seem to find it in any later images.

That 1823 UT SDO image looks like the comet to me. You can even trace the long tail.

Which just happens to lie along the CCD pixel column and be exactly one pixel wide!

It's definitely an artifact. Not visible in the very next image.

I still think it's much too damned early to tell if this thing is a dud.

For one, it has yet to emerge out of the occulting discs in both the C2 and C3 coronagraphs.

Secondly, there was somewhat the same behavior out of Lovejoy.

Ok, look at the same area in this image, not exactly the same time, but it looks like it's right at the center of the full field (cropped here) and in this wavelength you can see a line down the center of the image. So the previous image I posted is probably an artifact.

So many ups and downs with this comet. 2 days ago it was said to be breaking up. Yesterday it was looking much better than expected. And now it is gone.
