It appears there was a Thanksgiving roast in space on Thursday.
Many scientists believe a comet did not survive its holiday close encounter with the sun.
Astronomers have been studying and tracking Comet ISON for months, including University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy's Karen Meech.
"It gives us a glimpse back at the past like an archaeologist digging at rubble," she said. "So we try and figure out what the chemistry and composition of the building blocks of our planet were."
Comets are basically balls of ice and dust that are leftover debris from the formation of our solar system.
Scientists knew Thanksgiving Day would be the moment of truth for ISON. Thursday was the day the 4.5-billion-year-old comet would make its closest approach to the sun.
"Any time you come close to the sun, the heat from the sun vaporizes all of the materials on the surface and then we get a really good chance to use a lot of telescopes to study the comet," Meech said.
But astronomers weren't only studying, they were waiting, along with many space enthusiasts, to see if ISON would survive the close encounter.
Images from NASA spacecraft showed it approaching. Nothing was seen coming out on the other side.
It's still unknown if any pieces of the ISON remain. If so, astronomers may be able to study them to learn even more about comets. There's a small chance we may catch a glimpse of them in the sky in the coming weeks.
ISON is named after the International Scientific Optical Network that discovered it last year.
