Hi Leonid,

Nice article, thanks for the write up. Did you see the latest images though from just a few hours ago obtained by John Glossop and posted by Rob Kaufman? Here are the photobucket links for the readers:

From these images it would appear that it is regenerating a coma! It has definitely split into at least two parts, but may not be completely disintegrating and losing all of its volatiles. Could it be that the initial diffusion and fading of the coma as seen in the last few days was simply due to the effects of the CME of the 19th? That the CME caused a flare up and that flare up depleted the volatiles on the surfaces and then it took more than a week now for the activity to build up enough to be seen again from earth? How many CME interactions do we know of with long period comets? I couldn’t… (cont)
