Question what does a comets tail look like when it's coming at you, I'm sure not the same as going past you ?

Depends on where the sun is with respect to where you and the comet are.

Read my post again, you'll find that I am referring to comet Elenin making mainstream not YU55, I know that YU55 made mainstream, and ovbiously by making the mainstream it would have to have been in a NASA newsletter.

Comet Elenin on the other hand, may have made the newsletter, but it didn't make the mainstream like YU55.

Exactly if something that has a tail and is coming right at you its tail will be out of your line of sight either blocked by the actual object or what part of the tail that does show will appear smaller. But if you have a profile view say from the side then the tail will appear larger and then as you said reflect more light. Think about it.

The ionic tail of a comet always faces opposite of the sun, the dust tail sometimes is slightly tilted from exact opposite of the sun, this is how some or most comets have two tails. They both face away from the sun and never can point towards the sun, it (the tail) rotates around the sun like a ball on the end of a string twirled around, with the ball being the core of the comet, the actual mass.

Exactly but what if you are directly between the Sun and said Comet? It's tail as nasa said would appear "wimpy" wouldn't it?

Elenin is nemesis nibiru/wormwood, NASA knows and so do alot of posters claiming otherwise.


Why? Because you say so? Terral's ridiculous claims have been shown to be false over and over and over and over and over and over again. Why don't you do some actual research for yourself> Find out what comets are, find out what planets are, find out what brown dwarfs are, find out how gravity and celestial mechanics works... then start researching Sumerian astronomy. You will be shocked, shocked to find out the truth.


Nice!!!
So, here we go!!!
I am calling you out Pilgrim....

"Shocked to find out the truth" you say?
This insinuates that you know the truth ,does it not?


What do you say ATS???

I challenege DWJ001 to THUNDERDOME!!!


Two minds enter one minds leaves!

So, what is this truth of which you speak based upon sumerian astronomy?

I am all EYES

The Sumerians didn't do astronomy:

When comets pass close to the sun, some of the ice evaporates, and forms a coma typically 10,000–100,000 km (rarely up to one million km) wide. Also, the solar wind (charged particles radiating from the sun) pushes a tail of ions (electrically charged atoms) directly away from the sun. Solar radiation pushes away dust particles to generate a second tail that curves gently away from the sun and backwards.

The coma and tails have a very low density—even the best vacuums produced in laboratories are denser. The Earth passed through a tail of Halley’s comet in 1910, and it was hardly noticeable. But comets reflect the sun’s light very strongly, which can make them very spectacular when they are close to both the sun and Earth.

Comet's coma and tail have also proved to have little to no effect on spacecraft, and within a comet's coma the light intensity we see here on earth is hardly noticeable until the comet core is in sight. Reference this post for a visual.

I believe to trust NASA one would first have to trust the NAZI's.... i.e. Debunk Operation Paperclip...Yeah?


What? Are ATSers unaware that 1000's of Nazi scientists were brought to america and put into positions in Academia, the Military Industrial Complex and that Nasa is an extension of the US military?

Of course everything they say is not a lie or a conspiracy yet all they have to do is lie when it matters and they do not have to fool all the fools, only the majority....

I bet many of you do not understand why you eat bacon and eggs for breakfast???

Oh yes, there is a real reason we eat bacon and eggs for breakfast and oh yes it is MIGHTY relevant to the subject matter.


Ya NASA being part of the Military Industrial Complex and that Nasa is an extension of the US military?
So now the Military having made all NEO top secret Nasa has no choice but lie

Do you have a source for this? I'm sure the IAU would be surprised by this news if its true.

Hi, guys. I just thought I would pop in to yet another hopelessly derailed thread, and let everyone know that C/2010 X1 Elenin is a normal comet, moving on a normal, highly elliptical solar orbit. I'm sure that some of you are getting sick of reading the same thing, but I will continue to do so....over and over and over again.....until it finally sinks in.
