yea, you've come to the right place for an expert opinion


There are some ringers lurking in the bowels of ATS. If maybe a mikesingh or someone of that caliber comes on here and makes an intelligent post, I am likely to believe them.

Honestly, I really don't know, it could be Mercury, or a bright star in the background. If it starts to zig-zag, or stops and starts shooting out a ray that starts as a cone formed by several blue lines that then converge at a point to form a single bright blue beam heading to the sun, then worry.

Hellion-1957 brown dwarf, couple years early through. Damn, only got 1 grandkid outta my lot and the garden is doing so well this year. I've been ready to go for years.

Let me guess, you got kicked out of the N. Korean underground "Ark".

Been looking at the images at the nasa stereo thing. (in the first post)

It almost seems to me like the object hasn't moved much in the last few hours, unless it's headed straight on....

the thing I found really weird is that two hours of images are missing between 13:07 and 15:07...is that normal? It doesn't happen anywhere else in todays list of images...just odd.

Eh, how do you know it's not a planet? The view from earth isn't the same as it is from the satellite taking these images -- Mercury may not be in the right part of the sky from our point of view, but what about from the satellite's point of view?

This seems like a big to do about nothing -- until somebody can definitively show, without mere conjecture, that this ISN'T a planet.

The Sun is 8 light minutes away. We'd feel the effects temperature wise long long before any debrise hit us (Ice age to the Nth degree). So the Earth would pretty much bee an icecube and all life frozen in time long before its crushed by a piece of molten lava....

I dunno what it is either, no expert my self in astrology, but my guess is it might be Venus, mars would indeed be on the otehr side, unless of course the images are upseide down at which point it may very well be Mars.

That was an entertaining "letter". I just like to stir up things that others have rumored so we can all torment in DOOM.

But this could be something, 99.99% says it's not (low balled it)

It's an object closer to Earth than the Sun, that will cross the path between the observers perspective and the Sun. Maybe space junk.

SOHO Venus transit, for comparison of course:

Does anyone know where the satellite taking the images is located?

In the first comment to the author of this thread about July 7th. It is coincidence that someone said a crop circle (in another thread) says there will be a solar storm on that date. Hmmmm

Well this gets interesting.. In the past few minutes the NASA website has gone down. Prior to that new images stopped appearing in the gallery. The last one was at 22:07 UT.. should have been one at 23 then at 37 then at 53 etc..

No new images and site suddenly down..

Coincidence? who knows.

I don't think the object is big enough to cause any problem for us even if it did impact the sun.

If you go to the bottom link in the original post, and then click on the "where is stereo" link about 1/2 way down on the left, it gives you a diagram from the 29th of where the two satellites are. It also shows Earth, Venus, Mercury and the Sun. Since the object only shows in the views from the satellite that trails the earth, the B one, I am thinking we are seeing Mercury about to pass behind the sun.
Should know for sure in a couple days either way.

I dont think even if whatever that object is impacted to sun we would be influenced. The sun is a big ball of fire with a huge gravitational pull, Who knows its probably going to be more fuel for our furnace.

How awesome that would be,... more heat

Well whatever it is it doesn't move much in 12hrs (10.07 - 22.07).

Also the image at 22.07 looks definitely oval shaped.

Could this be Nemesis or possibly Nibiru or possibly a "ship" of unknown origin?
