Comet Machholz. It'll be around again next year. Maybe it will be visible to the naked eye this time.

edit on 10/3/2011 by Phage because: (no reason given)


This looks bigger than the one that impacted and, from what i can find, is only a few km wide. i can see now that this object is unlikely to have been of earth-like proportions.

Sorry, That was my fault.

I was tossing football with my kid and told him to go long.

Guess I don't know my own strength!

Sorry for the Rukus.


You don't think NASA will be mad do you???

Just for you, just since you seemed to miss it being posted in this thread the past 5 or 6 times, the OP video shows us that the footage from NASA and the Military is missing the data from approx. 0800 to 1300!!!

Yes, the feeds are live so if you go look at it you're seeing it in real time, however there was editing of the footage before it was released on the NASA and Military sites.

Do i need to repeat this on every page?

To me, this is one of the best replies on this thread. I like the way you think. It's so easy to get carried along with all this, and miss the important things. Bravo...

Does NASA really edit out their videos like this YT-er is suggesting? Wouldn't they realize people grab them 24 hours a day then upload them? So what's the point of editing them out (if they do)? They'd just calling more attention to themselves.

I don't know about the goings-on with the no-tell NASA boys but I thought this was worth sharing

Whatever it was we better hope there wasnt any iron in that thing because stars can't convert iron and our sun will start going supernova. Iron in a star is baaaad juju.

Pluto? More like Jupiter sized dude. You could literally fit thousands of Plutos' inside our Sun - it is that big.

Whatever this was, it was focking HUGE. Interesting few days should be coming geo-activity wise.

Near Earth Asteroids
Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.


On October 4, 2011 there were 1250 potentially hazardous asteroids.

...PLUS whatever it was, obviously withstood the heat, radiation etc. that would destroy most every material we know of, well before it hit the sun !!!!!

What I dont understand is how anything could ever hit, or make contact, with the sun. With the sun being as hot as it is, wouldnt ANY object be totally decimated from the extreme heat before ever coming in contact with the sun?

Not if it was a planet the size of jupiter. A planet with sufficient mass could bust through the corona easily.

....Absolutely, but a body made of whatever it is Jupiter consists of would break apart at the speed that whatever was travelling at !

Aliens fired a planetary size missile at the sun to trigger the early release of a solar flare that would otherwise have burst out--as the sun rotated--sending the flare directly towards earth. NASA has a deal with the Aliens, they help protect earth...so NASA deletes the frames from the pics to hide the obvious Alien involvement.

Care to cite any sources to substantiate this claim?:


....we better hope there wasnt any iron in that thing because stars can't convert iron and our sun will start going supernova.



Because, a bit of easy research seems to refute it. Would be interesting to see what sources assert this, because....

....Firstly, the scientific and mathematical/physics models of star life cycles show conclusively that a star with the mass of our Sun cannot supernova. Not even a "regular", smaller nova, either. It will, as it nears it's end of life, expand into red giant size, gradually engulfing out to about the orbit of Mars...then, after another number of millions of years, will exhaust its supply of fuel, and collapse to a dwarf size, in the "white" spectrum:



Even as a "white dwarf", it is not immune to death. The fusion reactions will cease, eventually...becoming a "black dwarf".

Further reading: Life Cycle of the Sun


Although, of course, the vast majority of the mass of the Sun consists of hydrogen, it does have trace amounts of heavier elements, including iron, in its composition:


The Sun is a Population I, or heavy element-rich, star.....

(note) - In astronomical sciences, the term heavy elements (or metals) refers to all elements except hydrogen and helium.


Wiki source, quick and easy, to the rescue

See the values in the table.


Oxygen 0.77%
Carbon 0.29%
Iron 0.16%
Neon 0.12%
Nitrogen 0.09%
Silicon 0.07%
Magnesium 0.05%
Sulfur 0.04%


When you consider the sheer size, it would require a significant amount of added mass introduced externally, of any element or combination of elements, to make a difference enough to upset the Sun's equilibrium.

Wait..you are saying people "like Phage" are feeding their egos...but nut-cases who spread lies about the world coming to an end and spread and write lies IN ALL CAPS almost on a daily basis here are NOT feeding their egos?

85% of the postings here (IMO) are made for exactly that reason: To troll around by spreading lies and fear and feeding the egos of some basement-dwelling conspiracy nut who gets his only kick from writing on a forum like this to gullible people. THIS is feeding egos as good as it gets.
edit on 3-10-2011 by flexy123 because: (no reason given)



This happen to make the rounds last night and many people (albeit, novices) didn't and don't know what to make of it.
I personally posted it because to me, aka: novice, looked beyond impressive.

I can only speak for myself and, I am not about spreading lies or fears as you said rather I try to investigate all possibilities before I close in on one. And part of the problem I have with more stern members on ATS is: they seem to lack the ability to explore. They're more auto-reflective and quickly refer back to what was once thought.

I don't know about others but my world is rapidly changing. The things I thought I knew hardly even apply now-a-days.
So please, let up a little. This is a multi forum. Not a science class. We're all not as intense and serious and stern as some other posters.


And nothing for nothing, 'the world coming to an end' didn't start here my friend. Take that up with your local religious leaders! We're just the environmental bi-products. Left overs...if you will!

Someone was trying to explain it to me this way. And of course, it's just another theory but, when a comet gets close to the Sun, it sort of has the same effect as a tiny drop of water has to a scolding hot frying pan.
Another words...a tiny drop has an enormous effect.

When someone breaks it down like that, using kindergartner pictograms, I can better visualize it and then start to process it


Caveat: I am not saying that this is what happened yesterday but I s'pose we can use that imagery for all sun-grazers, right Phage?
