Pay attention to the last paragraph, that is the info for preppers.
.............................................................................What real comet? Well, chances are, you havent heard of C/2002 V1, or
Comet NEAT yet, but you will
In the middle of September 2002, around the equinox, a large cometary body, twice the size of Pluto, plunged through the asteroid belt into the inner
solar system headed on what could only be called a close encounter trajectory with our sun. It brightened rapidly and on November 6th 2002 was
discovered by NASAs Near Earth Asteroid Tracking, or NEAT, program as it emerged from the asteroid belt. Closer examination showed that it was not an
asteroid, but a strange nickel/irridum rich snowball of a comet.
It came from the direction of the constellation Pegasus and after swooping around our sun inside the orbit of Mercury would head off again in a long,
one and one half a precessional cycle orbit of between 37,000 thousand and 39, 000 years. The last time it visited, modern man had yet to develop from
the earlier homonids. A few thousands years later, the Neanderthal was extinct and Homo sapiens sapiens, or monkey too smart for his own good (also
known as killer monkey for what they did to the Neanderthal), was the lord and master of the planet. Is it our turn, when, as Nostradamus reminds us,
the comet shall pass?
The comet was visible, though not with the naked eye, to those who knew where to look when the space shuttle went down. As the Columbia streaked east
into the dawn and her doom, the faintest traces of the glow of the comet could be seen just below Pegasus and just above the juncture of Pisces and
Aquarius. Ten days later, it could be seen with the naked eye in the moments just before dawn, a tiny silver star on the horizon.
And then it plunged too close to the sun to be seen, except by NASAs SOHO solar observatory. As SOHO watched the objects close encounter with the
sun, pulses and flares erupted and on February 18th an enormous coronal mass ejection surged out from the sun and swatted the comet as it passed. And
then the fun began
One day after the CME struck the comet, the Homeland Security folks issued a very serious toned warning about preparing for a disaster or a terrorist
attack. Included were provisions for clean air such as sealing doors and windows with duct tape and using heavy-duty plastic bags. The person
should also try to keep the nose/mouth clear of any dust (you should have a dust/comfort mask handy). Read the steps for ´clean air´ as advised by the
Homeland Security Department.
