TSoDS: Com-asteroid-rex Sprouts Six Tails, Befuddles Scientists... and itself? #2

So, is it an asteroid, a comet, or a sign of the arma-pox-oclyps?

Confused Asteroid Sprouts Tails… Six of Them!

I find the "fix" for this one a bit too clever by half. It is claimed to be some combination of what could be described as a Coriolis effect that is imparted by radiated IR photons that is throwing off material from it's equator. One problem. The pictures provided taken 13 days apart, lack the tell tail cork screw of a spinning body moving along a specific trajectory, and throwing material from it's axial equator. As a matter of fact, the angular nature remains relatively constant, only changing in in ray intensity.

Will it have to blow a coma like Chiron to get everyone on the same page here?
