I have noticed several people stating that it is too far to be of any direct consequence to the Earth in the present, yet the very real possibility still exists that it can and just may travel in the blink of an eye trillions of Miles...
This is an important find and until some definitive answers are made best to keep a heads up on this one. Expect official Sierra bravo to boot from the scientific community once the big guys step in. This information is big and nothing new is being shared to date.

What I get from reading this and the various other articles on this subject is that final determination of the object as to what it was and how far away it was is still being debated.

I am disappointed that this information was withheld from the general public for over a year. Unless this story was released at the time of its discovery and I/we simply overlooked it, I want some ones figurative head on a platter as this behavior is unacceptable. It is exactly what sparks mistrust in the government and the scientific communities. Granted, politicians and scientists both hate to say “I don’t know”, but a scientists is supposed to say, “I don’t know, let’s find out!” and the politician is supposed to say, “I don’t know because the previous administration left uncertainties about this type of issue”. Or words to that effect in either case.

The 100 day duration of this mystery light, may be due to something igniting and burning out or may be due to something that has been there all along and something else has been blocking our view of it, and for 100 days, that something has moved aside. Another theory, Gravitational Lensing, is that something else has passed between the light source and us causing a magnification of that light for the 100 days allowing us to see it, perhaps a black hole. A radical theory is that this light is from an object that has been moving faster than the speed of light and for 100 days the object had slowed down to normal light speed, during which time it became visible. All I can say to that is, May the Force give you long life and prosperity, always. (there, star wars and start trek combined)

My confusion to these articles stems from such a great diversity of theory and interpretation of facts. The time references given in the original article, place the source of the light at 160 light years away, while a conflicting reference places the light source at well over several billion light years away. The assessment of the actual light in determining it origin, distance and originating source composition is another enigma altogether. If I am understanding this correctly, it could be from a source of Hydrogen, but appears different somehow from the way normal Hydrogen burns, Argon, Arsenic, Sodium, Helium, Iron and oddly enough Helium3 have all been suggested. I say Helium3 as an oddity because Helium3 has only recently come into the world of science as a potentially powerful energy source and thus the resurgence of lunar exploration as the moon is a plentiful supply of Helium3 while it is very rare on the Earth.

I guess I am like everybody else here, I am disappointed that the discovery was withheld from the public, intrigued at the possibilities as to what this new thing is, dumbfounded that those who I hold in such high regards can’t give me a definitive explanation after all this time. I’ll stay tuned………

Very interesting. Last week I happened to be looking up and saw something very bright that did not move in any direction and simply whent from the brightest object in the sky save the moon, and in about 30 seconds or so just disapeared. I wonder if it was a sattelite?

Cool!
This is really neat.

Fun scenario: A few million years ago a scientist (who was a member of a race we have never known and never will know) was finally given clearance to test his new propulsion design. The gargantuan device had been his life for the last couple of our centuries. The whole behemoth was embedded in a unimaginably enormous ship.
The scientist stared for a moment through a small portal as he floated in the protruded bridge section. From this vantage point he could look down the length of the smooth ship's hull, but he couldn't make out the end, for it's length stretched twice as far as he could see.
He shifted his gaze, just for a moment, his vision and mind making a brief connection with the tiny sun. So dim compared to our own, the scientist was very aware of just how much of a defiance of nature's norm the anomaly represented. The dim sun, a theoretical impossibility would never reveal the secret to its existence, the chance to unravel this mystery of nature was about to be lost forever...
The scientist finally turned to the expectant technician and uttered in his race's language "open the particle stream, when it reaches full power, initiate the Space Compressor. Jump 30 light years a hold position for performance analysis."
The technician started operating controls at his console.
Minutes later, reality collapses in on itself as everything goes wrong. The enormous ship momentarily becomes a singularity, right at that moment the truly profound amount of energy that was held in suspense, poised to torture space and reality to achieve the theoretically impossible is released in one star system anialating flash that steadily grows as it feeds on its own radiation and eventually fades into nothingness.
A few million years later, the light from the catastrophe is collected by man's primitive optical instrument. Hubble.

You don't know... It might be what happened...

Wow thats pretty neat eh, seems the hubble might have caught a glimpse of something floating in the cosmos, I like the direct quote from the source where the man states it could be the engines of a big ship starting up to warp drive, could quite possibly be, im sure it would take lots of energy to do that, well im sure it'll happen again my lifetime so im not too worried, lol

well, did you ever go to the beach and see a ball floating between waves? when the waves were higher, the ball would look like dissapearing, then latter on you can see it again , right?
My believe is that our 3 dimmensional space is not "flat" or uniforme, there are dimmensional waves - in this case the vawes of a 4-th dimmension. If what I say it`s true then we should see other stars appearing and disappearing .. we will see!
I believe that we live in a 3D membrane of a space with 4 dimmensions or more. This event somehow confirms my believe, but as I said - only one event it would not be enough to prove anything..

As space is a Time Machine, this happened 8 Billion years ago, unless
my Abacus is in error because the batteries are going flat.

You know I am sitting here and wondering... could this be an interdimensional object? If so.. could they just appear anywhere? what sort of effects could happen if the seperation between dimensions breaks down and things start popping up all over the place or what if EARTH popped from its dimension into another? OK thats actually what some people are theorizing will happen in 2012.. but ... what. If?

Maybe scientist should pay closer attention to this region.

Might this be the first observance and closest proximity of a worm hole? I'm sure it'll be quite some time before we have any answers ... wormhole or not.

Oh crap, Nibiru has arrived!



On a more serious note this is truly interesting, cannot wait for more info

Is is Nibiru, which can be seen if you watch the solar eclipse on Aug. 1 2008 from China.

I found that you can see Nibiru perfectly when the sun was in full eclipse, I had heard about it, but was shocked when it was proven to me, when I saw this video.

Then press totality video, you will see Nibiru starting at the 1:43 of the video.

I'm reminded of these verses.
Luke 21:25-26

25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.


There's an even better one, but I can't find it.

Was there any reference to how large this thing would have to be? Is there any way to tell?

Nah ! Captain Kirk made a wrong turn driving the USS Enterprise and accidently strayed into the Romulan Neutral Zone and a space battle took place. Kirk won the day and got to snog the female Romulan girl !!


On a serious note i think it was probably a star burst or something. A mini nova?? or God saying whoo hoo !! After all it's is HIS playground!!

As long as it doesn't hurt.

I think we have all suffered enough pain on this earth.

Awesome find, intriguing to say the least and guess what? It made the national radar! Thanks for bringing this to our attention, star and flag for you



Astronomers Baffled by Mysterious Light in Sky

It's not a supernova. Nor is it a galaxy, or a black hole.

In fact, astronomers have no idea what the mysterious object that in February 2006 suddenly flared up in an otherwise barren patch of sky might be, or even what it's made of.

Researchers working on something called the Supernova Cosmology Project had pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at a very distant star cluster, 8.2 billion light-years away or more than halfway across the universe.

But they noticed something else — a point of light where there hadn't been one before.
