Sundiving comet recorded by Lasco C3

Sundiving or Sun-Grazing comet has been found on the Soho Lasco C3 instrument during October 18th. Impact is expected late Oct 19th or early Oct 20th. Here is the video by SolarWatcher recorded from SOHO Lasco C3 instruments:

The Sun is pretty quiet for now although it has that many sunspots and more facing Earth, yet none of them is producing flares.  Perhaps this is the calm before the storm. Sunspot AR1319 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong M-class flares. NOAA forecasters estimate a 30% chance of such an eruption in the next 24 hours.
