ISON Hubble Images
Images of ISON- the hidden truth.
This is a compilation of photos (with a deeper look into the hubble images) taken from a video that I find very interesting. What is being hidden, what don’t we know? What is ISON? Is it really a comet? Is it the star system that has been talked about? What will happen when it gets closer to earth? Check this video out!- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0UpZ6xJzPk&feature=share
Full-Halo Coronal Mass Ejection with sun diving Comet!
Check out these amazing videos! Another sign. Be prepared.
A small comet plunged into the sun this morning, and just before it arrived, the sun expelled a magnificent full-halo CME. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) recorded the action. In the final frames of the movie, the comet can be seen furiously vaporizing. Indeed, those were the comet’s final frames. It did not emerge again from its flyby of the hot sun. “With a diameter of perhaps a few tens of meters, this comet was clearly far too small to survive the intense bombardment of solar radiation,” comments Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab, who studies sungrazing comets.
The CME (coronal mass ejection) came from an explosion on the farside of the sun. Although the CME and the comet appear to intersect, there was probably no interaction between the two. The comet is in the foreground and the farside CME is behind it.
Occasionally, readers ask if sundiving comets can trigger solar explosions. There’s no known mechanism for comets to spark solar flares. Comets are thought to be too small and fragile to destabilize the sun’s magnetic field. Plus, this comet was still millions of kilometers from the sun when the explosion unfolded.
The comet, R.I.P., was a member of the Kreutz family. Kreutz sungrazers are fragments from the breakup of a single giant comet many centuries ago. They get their name from 19th century German astronomer Heinrich Kreutz, who studied them in detail.
TONIGHT- Halley’s Comet Meteor Shower! –*
Halley’s Comet “Meteor Shower” to peak tonight at 9pm— !! 30-40 meteors per hour. 🙂
The Eta Aquarid meteor shower is one of two “shooting stars” displays created by dusty debris from Halley’s Comet, which orbits the sun once every 76 years. The comet was last visible from Earth in 1986, but it has left trails of dust across the solar system that, as the Earth passes through them, create the Eta Aquarid meteor shower in early May and the Orionid meteor shower in mid-October.
The next time Halley’s Comet will swing near Earth will be in 2061.
Perseid Meteor Shower!!
Who’s looking out to the skies for the Perseid Meteor Shower ?!! Well, here in NYC I am hoping to see something!!
Look towards the constellation of Perseus. 🙂
