We have a big comet coming in a few months. It will take our minds off the economy for a while. I do not know how close it will come, apparently it is not going to be a threat. It may give us a decent show though.

www.ancient-origins.net...

At least it isn't doom porn like the virus and politics we have been discussing lately.

I could really use a good show in the sky.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who genuinely believes a beautiful comet can be a nice thing...even a positive omen.

A huge icy space rock, comet ‘Atlas’, is currently in the constellation Ursa Major in the northern sky orbiting Mars, but it’s on a trajectory with our Sun and it will get progressively brighter as it reaches its closest point at the end of May, if it doesn't fragment that is.


As long as it's orbiting Mars, we should be safe. It might become a moon of Mars.

No doom and gloom with this rock. It could be a decent show though. Hopefully people are still not quarantined when the comet appears. Heck people might be so riled up about politicians and their blame throwing, they may not even know the comet is in the sky. Supposedly this comet hasn't done this for around six thousand years.

On the scale of big things in the star system, Comet Atlas falls somewhere between the Sun and Jupiter with the gaseous cloud surrounding her having a diameter of about 447,387 miles!

Not that she will come anywhere close to Earth and apparently it's not unusual for comets to grow so large.

But don't humans do some crazy things when comets appear in our sky?

Harbinger of doom and all that jazz?

Remember that movie "Night Of The Comet"?

I remember looking out our patio door at the comet that came close to earth about twenty five years ago. The lighted atmosphere was huge. I wonder how close this will come to earth, the article says it will be a once in a generation event. I do not know what that means, if it doesn't come back for another six thousand years, it definitely will a once in multiple generation event. I hope it is an amazing event.

Will we be able to see it like we could with hale bop? I was in the Mojave, during that time, that thing look weird out there. You could see it really good.

From my understanding the comet itself is a few miles wide with a 6 miles radius of its cloud. I don't really understand it all because it mentions its atmosphere being very large so idk for sure.

I trust the JPL projections as much as anything else that people have built. It would be great to have something non-ELE but once-in-a-millennium celestial visual; would be refreshing, and perhaps even inspirational.

Hale-Bopp was visible to the naked eye while beyond Mars, so probably not as nice as that.

We can hope, but not too much. We've been fooled before.

I know right. Someone shoot a fcking gravity well besides it's trajectory.

I am looking forward to the show.

I remember watching Halley's comet, would be nice to take my son outside and see this one.
