Comet Tails: A Cosmic Dance


Comet Tails: A Cosmic Dance

The enigmatic nature of comets reveals itself through the captivating changes in their tails.

Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, as captured in a series of images over nine days, showcases a dynamic ion tail that varies in length and complexity.

These alterations are influenced by factors such as the ejection rate of material from the comet’s nucleus, the strength of the solar wind, and the comet’s rotation.

Moreover, Earth’s perspective also contributes to apparent changes in the tail.

Notably, Pons-Brooks may make a rare appearance during today’s total solar eclipse, offering a celestial spectacle for those witnessing the Sun’s complete obscuration by the Moon.
