Object near the Sun, seems to be heading toward the Sun

I personally believe that due to the poor picture quality, it gives the impression that the object, which is Mercury, is 'tumbling' and also appears as two seperate objects.

So as I understand it either:

a) it's an alien spaceship the size of Mercury orbiting the sun which no amateur astronomer on the planet has noticed

or

b) is's a giant comet the size of Mercury which is breaking up in two and which no amateur astronomer on the planet has notice (and which presumably should be named after the OP)

or

c) It's Planet Nibiru, which has changed its size to resemble Mercury but nonetheless has not been seen by a single amateur astronomer on tthe planet.

or

d) It's Mercury

Here's Mercury's position right now [July 3, 2009; 12 pm Pacific time]

Sun 11* 58'34" Cancer
Mercury 29* 58'47" Gemini

according to Astro.com which uses the same Ephemeris, for planet and star positions, that NASA does.
www.astro.com...

Sun and Mercury are 12 degrees apart, not sure due to the size of the sun, if that would allow Mercury to be seen as on top of it.

Could I ask, please, is this 'thing' crashing into the sun or is it just flying past the sun?

And if it were to crash into the sun, would this affect us in some way?

Also, if it flying by the sun, is it likely that we will be able to see what it is as it gets furthur away from the sun?

Also, why have NASA not commented on it at all?
I find that strange as they could just say, 'don't worry (sh)eoples, it's just a comet!'

They are conspicuous by their absense of commentary on this!

They have footage of comets crashing into the sun, it's no big deal, nothing happens.

Um.. why are people assuming it's going to hit the sun? You are basing it on why? You are looking at it from a 2-D plane. If you were to see it from the side, you'd probably realize it's no where close to hitting the sun.

But regardless, it won't, because it's Mercury, and Mercury has a tendency to not fly into the sun.

I don't think they believe it will, their just asking what would happen if "something" were to hit the sun.

A tiny object the size of Mercury crashing into the Sun probably wouldn't affect us at all, though obviously we've never witnessed such an event to know for sure. But it'd be like throwing a lighted match into a furnace.

Imagine the effects on Earth after comet Shoemaker-Levy hit Jupiter, but 10,000 times less severe.

Currently its British Summer Time. Which is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time/UHT

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I cannot find the thread about the 4inline sunspots. But I remember reading someones opinion that the 4inline could be from one massive amount of pressure below.

I am fairly new to this informative site. Most of the conspirasies and theorys I try to be skeptical and take with a grain of salt. The universe and the going ons of our solar system have been one of my favorite topics for several yrs.

There is a few threads here from some very intelegent people, the above link about solar flares, the particular sunspots.....now an object that may or maynot be heading for the sun. All coincidence or all tied to same outcome???

Essan and FrozenMonkey - Thank you!

But,don't you find no comment from NASA on something on their very own site a little odd?

Well, they have archives of past comets, so they do highlight them. Maybe the info is somewhere else on their website, or maybe they plan to add it in later. Or, maybe, if it is a comet, it's not going to hit the sun, but fly past it and so they don't mention it? Just some reasons that come to mind.

But surely this is one MASSIVE comet if a comet is what it is?

How would you just 'let go' and not mention something that size?

It's planet size not comet size!

17 pages many stating that this is Mercury so why all the questions?

How can i close this thread?

why do you want to close this thread? If it bothers you so much then just stay away from it.

Because it's really not Mercury, but i was helping cover up

Agreed entirely, but as we can both see people will believe what they want to even if it means counting out the plausible reasoning.

It is Mercury, Mercury, Mercury. How are you all going to feel when it passes as it always does and you were all so sure it was planet X? If I am wrong fine but I am doubtful I will be and this is just a prime example of people not entirely understanding something and attributing irrational ideas because of it.

Just because everyone can't figure out the logical explanation doesn't mean there isn't one.

Look at questioningall's post. It appears to be getting closer to the sun but in reality it is passing around it. If it were planet X with its elliptical orbit of 3600 years I think I can rationally assume it would not pass around the sun at the speed it has been, hence it's mercury.

Denying ignorance...

Maybe the real reason why NASA hasn't responded is because they have more important things to do than answer simple questions about regular orbiting planets where the information can be found by the individual?
