    Anyone following this? It's Howard related as the siri sat's will be destroyed by the radiation from the flares it's sure to produce.

    The fact that nobody has heard anything about this is scarier then the thought of just what could occur electrically between the comet and the sun and it's resulting CME's streaming towards earth. The government has a tight lid on this one. Nasa is blatantly lying about it's size according to some astrophysicists.

    This is what's bothering me, We will see it all in front of us in November and pass through the tail debris in january and no one is talking about aside from 5 min news blurbs. I've seen a picture from Nasa. It had the scale of Jupiter as a reference. The ball of the comet was 1/2 the size of jupiter at the distance of jupiter from the sun. The head doesn't grow that large that far out. Even if the comet were 1/8 the size of the ball, it would be way larger than the 5km size nasa has given it.

    If anyone googles, you can start with the nasa noaa stuff but go back a few pages. I don't buy the planet x theories everyone is lumping in with it at all, but there are a few astrophysicists that are claiming nasa is down playing at the nicest and flat out lying at the worst. Look for electromagnetic ison sun connection video's to see just what could happen.

    Naked eye, could be visible to the naked eye as it exits the back side of the sun in day light! Hopi Blue star myth?

    at night it will be 16x as bright as a full moon. Another extremely weird nasa move is there are no plans to flip soho A or B to watch it from behind the sun as it swoops around. Why in hell aren't they already announcing the plan to flip their views so we can all watch live? If it explodes behind the sun it could be brilliant. If it swoops past unscathed the cme's it will generate will be enormous.

    Are we taking about the possibility of an extinction level event?

    Only reason I can come up with on why we haven't been hearing about this a lot more than we have been. If that comet has a large iron core it will most definitely interact with the sun electrically. That will produce some kick ass flares. If one huge flare hits with a series of smaller flares following for days on end, ya we'd be toast.

    Thing is, it doesn't have to be that strong. It could be just enough to take down the entire electrical grid around the world for decades. The electron flux will fry everything not in a faraday cage.

    the arora could be seen in the dakotas and down to kansas last night. This time of year that's rare. We are in a solar maximum cycle due to a freak double max last cycle. We should be 2 years post max but because of the 2nd unprecedented max it pushed everything foreword 2 years. Now enters this huge lighting ball at the same time :facepalm:

    Human's are funny creatures. We know for a fact that there have been 5 major extinction events in earth history. Why in God's name (pun intended) don't they believe the 6th is inevitable?

    I heard NASA will be providing streaming video of the comet when it passes closest to the earth. Anyone know what time ison?

    But bro, if anything were ever to happen, this is the one that could do it. It was discovered last fall by a russian team, now usually the person's that find it get the name, not in this case, ison is the facility where the scientists worked. That's never been done before either.

    Nov 24 it makes it's swing around the sun. It will be visible before that and long after if it survives. We have a lot better equipment this time around then kahotec's time.

    oh and it will pass well north of us by the looks of the orbital chart in january. The 12th is when we will get smacked by the outgoing tail then the 14th the incoming trail i think. We will get a double slap of the tail debris if it makes it around.
