Comet Lovejoy Still Visible
Since Comet Lovejoy survived its remarkable, slingshot journey around the Sun (most notably on Dec. 15-16, it has regained a long tail (pointing away from the Sun) and was and is still visible to STEREO's (Ahead) wide-angle imager (Dec. 17-29, 2011). Several faint particle clouds can be seen blowing way from the Sun as well.
