Almost looks like one of those mothershipthings from the NASA tether video trailing Holmes in the second clip. Not that those actually exist, just a similar appearance . .

Despite those ideas that make us want to wet ourselves, and might I say what an attractive image that is, the fact remains that according to this video, there is more to Holmes than meets the eye. Now as it stands, unable to either duplicate the video or study the raw data, we are left in somewhat of a quandary.

If there is a component to this comet that we have failed to notice heretofore, then it behooves us to take a second and third gander while we have it this close. However, nothing that I can see in the video, provided it is not some anomaly of the picture capture process itself, suggests this is anything other than some natural state of the "explosion" sequence.

I, for one, would like to have some idea of what this is.

Oh, I agree. Given the constraints of time and orbital mechanics, it won't happen this time round, but don't forget this is a short-period comet; we'll have another chance to study it in seven years, and another seven years after that, and another...

Always assuming it comes back, of course...

Just thought I would add a link to an update that member C.H.U.D. has posted on the possible explanation for the outburst of Comet Holmes one year ago.

comet holmes is an amazing topic..

as for reason why comet holmes reacted the way it did,,
at the time of the flaring there was a close allingment between holmes, mercury, venus and mars. earth was close in this allignment but a little off to one side.. but we sure felt the effects of it.. there was some very out of season weather..

i'm not putting myself up as an expert but the electric universe might explain some of this mystery..
