Yes, and to further:

One of the interesting features of the Sun & Heliosphere are “Co-rotating Interaction Regions” (CIR’s) or counter-streaming electrons heading sun-ward:

… the transition through the boundary between the two regions that tends to cause the most dramatic effects…

This boundary - where the flow speed and magnetic field direction both change abruptly - is known as a "corotating interaction region" or CIR. When Earth encounters a CIR, as it did on Monday night, the "shock" of the transition from one region to the other stirs up the magnetic field around the planet, causing it to fluctuate, sometimes in unpredictable ways. This can dump a significant amount of energy into Earth's magnetosphere, which can result in strong geomagnetic storms. – The Weather Network


Apparently tracked CIR’s were caught interacting with 67p as well (four times):

Four corotating interaction regions (CIRs), where the first event has possibly merged with a coronal mass ejection, are traced from Earth via Mars (using Mars Express and Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN mission) to comet 67P from October to December 2014. – Solar wind interaction with comet 67P: Impacts of corotating interaction regions


You have to wonder if these (CIR) counter-streaming electrons might be responsible for some of the unexpected flare-ups while comets heading back out of the solar system.

Researchers Predict Possible Birthplace of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko

“We performed a backward integration for 50 million years of 67/P (499 clones plus the nominal orbit) considering only gravitational forces from all the Solar System’s planets (apart from Mercury, whose mass was added to the Sun) plus gravitational perturbations of Vesta and Ceres.”

That's a riot, Seasmith! Does the backward integration explain where all the observed ice came from, or when the two lobes of 67P gently collided and fused together?

HYDRO-CARBON LAKE
found on 67P
17 November 2016
As Rosetta's comet approached its most active period last year, the spacecraft spotted carbon dioxide ice – never before seen on a comet – followed by the emergence of two unusually large patches of water ice.

(double post)

Is that a forum bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Wait a minute—are these "icy" patches confirmed, or merely assumed from bright spots?

It is also possible that the cometary nucleus retains residual charge.

Notice how there are flashes through the block after it is discharged. According to Bert Hickman, his blocks can "bite" for a few minutes. When they're picked-up the electric charge flow is attracted to fingers and some residual sparks can result. Scaled-up to the Solar System, after a comet has rounded the Sun it might continue to hold on to its accumulated charge for weeks or months. When it encounters Jupiter's magnetosphere, it could become destabilized.

Rosetta's Final Report
15 Dec 2016

Double Focussing Mass Spectrometer (DFMS) ...measured an increase in the surrounding gas pressure by more than a factor of 100 as the spacecraft neared the surface. ...

Temperature...rose...haven't figured out yet if that is due to the angle of the Sun changing, or if we were being heated by the nucleus as it filled more and more of the sky. ...

Alice Instrument... showed a steady increase in the UV flux during the descent. ... [to be expected from a decomposing material?]

RPC-LAP and RPC-MIP both reported very low plasma densities through the descent, though slowly and evenly increasing, similar to that seen by ROSINA-COPS for neutral gas. However, the plasma reached a broad peak of up to about 100–150 cm-3 (preliminary measurement) at about 2 km from the surface, before dropping off again. This is as expected for a plasma originating from the neutral gas released by the comet: its density must be low at the surface since the molecules found there have just left the nucleus and have not had any time to become ionized...

GIDA Dust instrument ... "During the final descent, the environment was like a clean room!" remarked GIADA Principal Investigator, ...

"Data from this period will eventually be made available in our archives in the same way as all Rosetta data."
