Hello all,

I caught this object while making a time elapsed vid of the sun's ejecta on helieoviewer.org.
The object must be huge and moving fairly slow as this time elapse covers about a week or two.
The other shooting stars are a blur. It clearly has a tail, then gets spun around backwards.
Take a look, its near the end of the clip, the object shoots up from the five o'clock position.

wow that is pretty cool video of a comet, you can see it really small, just around the sun, then get huge with a tail, as it flys by the sun

Why are objects like this not drawn into the sun?

Because they are moving very fast.
96P/Machholz was moving along at about 93,000 mph.

So if something were to come through this area of space at a high rate of speed would it necessarily effect any of the planets as far as to disrupt their orbits if it were fast enough.

Its velocity doesn't have as much to do with it as its mass would. A comet, no. A planet, yes.

Yes, but an object as small as a comet, the effects would be so negligible nothing noticeable would be affected.

I was thinking of something larger, but thanks.

Strange how it got flipped around to fly backwards, at least thats how it appears. Tail first?

That's how comets work. The tail points away from the Sun.

Here's the video:


If you are talking about the object near the top center of the video (at the end of the video), It looks to me like a comet. A comet's tail always faces away from the sun, so as the comet moves, the tail will point in a different direction.

The tail will be IN FRONT OF a comet as the comet moves away from the sun.

EDIT:
I see other people beat me to posting the video, and calling it a comet. It's strange, because I thought there were only two posts in this thread when I replied, but I see there are a bunch from yesterday. Either I was mistaken, or my web browser only showed half of the page...
...Sorry.

On a side note, it's worth noting that any object with sufficient mass to gravitationally affect the planets would do more "damage" to the stability of the planetary orbits if it was moving more slowly relative to any object that it passed. This is because the slower the flyby, the more time there is for the object's gravity to act.
