Can anybody tell me what is this mysterious object exploding near the sun?
Yes something just went boom in space!
Could this be a comet disintegrating on its way to the star?
I think this is a sundiving comet they often explode before impact. But it may also be a alien spacecraft that is refueling plasma from the sun.

I don’t know what other rational explanation there could be for this event caught on camera. NASA probably say it’s lens flare!
Watch a comet diving into the sun live!
