Im an idiot when it comes to anything but Central time LOL


I say within 2 hrs. Now that i look closer. I was off earlier on the time. LOL


Oh and SOHO went down just a little while ago, seems to be up and going again.

How certain is it to direct hit? I really hope this gives us a good slingshot. It would be great to watch it change it's orbit significantly.
btw anyone caught its name?

Well it should be about to hit anytime now. The LASCO image that we all have mainly been following, is hardly showing anything. The comet has move beyond the shield covering the Sun.

But here on the Stereo image from Ahead instead of behind. You can see it getting VERY close.

And your speed analysis for this comet,,, approximetly doctor,, not a spock ?

edit on 10-5-2011 by BobAthome because: by shortly do u mean 10,9,8,7 or in fifteen minutes to impact "mark" -- 14:99:00

I don't get the joke, or jab or whatever.

The analysis, is because I have sat and watched the track of this thing for several hours now, since it showed up in the frame of the LASCO images. And its right next to the sun... Here's the newest image. I cant seem to get them uploaded to embed them in the thread

OH and to add a little more excitement.....

Earth is located to the LEFT in those images above.

Sorry poor attempt at humour,, , was trying to get a better time frame of impact based on velocity and trajectory. if u had worked it out, mathematically. Has it impacted yet?

Looks like you can actually see a CME during the time of impact.

Look at times 2:24 - 7:24

I am looking at COR2

NASA SSC

If we are to the left, I wonder (if any) will be the impact to us.

I have to admit that I don't know that much about this stuff.

The sun is one of our defenses... This kind of thing happens all the time, we've just recently had the technology to monitor it... It's really cool though... I had to post those images on my facebook LOL

It would TRULY BE HORRIFIC if this comet hit the sun and the sun developed a dark spot that slowly encompassed its surface, putting out all of the fusion processes until the sun was a dark, spent ember at the center of our solar system. That twilight darkness replacing the once-bright sun would be maddening, frightening and truly horrifying. Aren't there ancient Native American legends that speak of this?

Could this be the "Arrow of Everlasting Darkness" cast out by some mythos's "God of Tricks?"

But, most likely, it will simply vaporize before impact, if it even hits at all.

No. The CME was not related to the comet.

Note that it is the white circle (not the outer edge of the coronagraph disk) which represents the Sun itself.

As can be seen in the images from STEREO A, the comet approached the sun from the opposite side on which the CME occurred. The CME began hours before the comet disappeared behind the coronagraph disk or "impacted".


In this frame it appears that the comet may have broken up as it neared the Sun but it could be a "beacon mode" image artifact.

Give it a rest,,


As a freedom loving individual i pick

Awesome video of impact! Agreed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! star and flag if i knew how : Now about that mathematical velocity/trajectory/timeframe too impact ,, i think your original analysis was quite correct and can now confirm with you ----------------------->>>IMPACT.
well done.
