LOUISVILLE, Ky. --- An incredible sight in space was captured by a NASA telescope recently.
A small comet hit the sun and vanished. A short time later, there was a massive solar flare.
Astronomers say it's just a coincidence. They say the comet was too small to cause such a big disturbance.
NASA is keeping a close eye on another comet that's expected to pass close by the sun in November.
