CONFIRMED Comet ISON has disintegrated [2MIN News 30-Nov-2013]

Please share and get the word out! (watch in HD full screen for best view)

Finally! We have an answer. It has disintegrated. The comet lingered for a moment after its crushing blow passing the Sun. Exiting the solar interaction just a fraction of what it entered as.... the remnants carried on their trajectory a bit further, the fractured debris showing "illumination" after passing beyond the Solar Corona once it reached into the greater solar wind. Now, clearly disintegrating , dimming, and fading away.

Seen on SOHO LASCO C3 (dates to search 2013-11-29 through 2013-11-30) http://sohodata.nascom.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/soho_movie_theater
