New research published Friday in the journal Science Advances suggests that the boozy space rock is releasing the equivalent of 500 bottles of wine per second. According to NASA the appearance and proximity of Lovejoy make it unusual as most comets orbit far away from the sun in cold. The present-day comets may provide an important snapshot of what the rocky bodies were carrying during the early days of the solar system.
The arrangement of the spiral arms in the galaxy Messier 63, seen here in a new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, recall the pattern at the center of a sunflower. A gravitational lens refers to a distribution of matter, such as cluster of galaxies, between the light source and an observer.

Moreover, when they gathered in packs the animals would have terminated a 9-year-old mastodon that weighed up to 2 tons. Leading the other researchers, a UCLA evolutionary biologist, Blaire Van Valkenburgh, that the lions of this age were much larger than those of today, and so were able to attack and kill a number of giant ground sloths and mastodons among others; and this prevented the large herbivores from overrunning the Pleistocene ecosystem which ended almost 11,700 years ago.
