I am bumping this thread to the top again because I really want to hear from an expert on this, and I want someone to tell me that, "No this is not
an undiscovered planetoid that is going to hit the Sun in a few hours. It is not going to be like a watermelon getting shot with a .44 magnum
hollowpoint, and pieces of the Sun are not going to rain down on the earth like a bucket of lava getting poured onto an antbed".
Thanks in advance. At this point I am somewhere near 85% sure that it is Mercury, but I am a stone noob at astronomy.
That very well could be Mercury. I don't know which way it's moving, but if the object is going to pass in front of the sun, there definitely seems
that it will pass in front of the sun on the seventh.
When you look at the time stamp of the photo, it only moves a about a centimeter or so, on the picture, in 12 hours.
LOL, yeah, I should have used a title that had a little more sensational fear mongering. Unfortunately, I do not fear death, and I don't really want
to scare anyone. If we were all about to die, I would remain calm, and hope others would too.
S&F........so anyone taking bets until we get the good ol "It's Planet X/Niburu" proclamation on this thread?!
Seriously, I have no idea what it is.....and I'm genuinely suprised that it wasn't clarified on the NASA site. For certainly they must know
what it is. I'm sure if it was an area of real interest, they wouldn't have ever posted it in the first place!
Even if something "hit" the sun, which I know you all aren't saying, wouldn't the sun gobble it up and fry it? Barring that if there were
fragments that survived to "rain down," wouldn't it take them a long, long time to get anywhere near us?
