This animation consists of 8 images, each a 3-image median combine stack, all with a r' filter, from 11:43 to 12:53 UT, Nov 14, made by Bruce Gary using a Celestron 11-inch telescope. Filamentary structure can be seen moving away from the sun at high speed. Credit: Site link

Wow. That's hard to make out. I'm really looking forward to the SOHO images starting the wee hours on the 27th.

CIOC did have this commentary on the jets: http://www.isoncampaign.org/padma/on-the-wings-of-ison

NASA has released a pretty cool graphic describing what a sun grazing comet is.
