Pretty cool new comet discovered. Not much info yet, we just know it's "weird". The orbit is retrograde with respect to the rest of the solar system.

Does this create more electrical potential to support electric comet models or does it induce other interesting, opportunities for new science? How does a comet from the Oort cloud possibly get enough energy to orbit retrograde?

All interesting questions.

Can't wait to find out.

It is probably from the magnetic bubble we entered a few months ago, and that was considered weird in itself. Maybe these new types of comets are from that?

My 71 Comet did not always go the same direction as other cars did. Maybe all comets share the same properties.

You do realize that a Retrograde Orbit, simply means it is going in a different direction that the majority of the other bodies are going......and that it does not require any special energy to achieve.

All it takes is for that body to begin moving in that direction.

There is nothing in Orbital Mechanics that says all objects have to orbit or spin prograde. Nor does it require anything special for an object to orbit or spin retrograde.

All it requires if for an object to move in that direction with enough velocity to maintain an orbit, and the amount of energy it requires will be the same for any direction of orbit, if it's the same mass and same periapse and apoapse distances.

Not particularly weird. There are a lot of retrograde comets. Halley's is a retrograde comet as a matter of fact.

In the Oort cloud, objects move very slowly (the further away from the Sun you are, the slower your orbit is). It might have been one of the outermost comets in the Oort cloud, and with a bit of a gravitational push from a star passing nearby, it might have been sent moving the opposite way from how our planets are moving.

Or it might have originated in another system and was captured by the Solar System's gravity.

In any case, I don't see how that has anything to do with electromagnetism or the Electric Universe theory. A comet just happens to have a retrograde orbit, and it's not the only object that does this.
