After I've seen this intriguing thread www.abovetopsecret.com... and this image(by Bilk22, ATS member)
seems that "OBJECT" is not what we thought!
So I searched some NASA news about this topic.
And find this:


Notice also how NASA point at that Object with its aim. The two White lines of the aim seems cover what that objet really is...

Compare with the image of Bilk 22...

And this...

So this ISON OBJECT could Fly By/Impact Mars in next Fall. ISON is heading for a Thanksgiving Day ?

Here is another video to put it in perspective. It definitely looks like its going to get really close to mars. Should be interesting to watch!

These are two different comets.

The comet in the first image is what we commonly refer to as comet ISON, and is designated: C/2012 S1 ISON

The comet that people were talking about a possible impact with Mars is designated: C/2013 A1 Sliding Spring

Two different comets.

Sliding Spring was first discussed in this thread here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Back in Feb.

Comet C/2012 S1 ISON will only get within 6.7 million miles of Mars.

Comet C/2013 A1 Sliding Spring will come very close to Mars in October 2014, possibly as close as 23,000 miles of it.

But it's not ISON that has any chance of impacting Mars.

Thanks for clearing that up. Just this morning I was reading 'Physics of the Future' and happened to get to the 'Teraforming Mars' section. One of the viable options to kickstart teraforming Mars is to redirect a comet towards Mars. Comets are mostly ice and rock, and if we picked the right one, we'd dump a bunch of ice into Mars that would heat up and melt in the atmosphere, quite possibly restarting the planet.

Maybe nature is thinking along the same lines

Thanks for another great thread Arken.
It´s going to be interesting to get a closer look at this object when it comes closer.
I hope it will be a a landing on Mars next year instead of a impact, that would makes thing more interesting.

Hi Erik.

Maybe I misunderstood.

So, why NASA call that Comet ISON? It is not the same "Object/Comet"?

My personal opinion is NO. None impact and for several reasons...

But, We could see "something strange" from Deimos and Phobos some days before the Fly By...

The triangle in the pic is not the shape of ISON. It is the result of several long exposure shots and a change in camera perspectives, making it look like 3 lines with an angle, when it is in fact just a dot.

I has been explained a hundred times and the evidence has been presented throughout that thread.

What a headless chicken farm of moronic proportions.

Stay very but very calm, Mr. "I know". And use a civil fashion to explain your point of view.
Ok?
Thx

It's the only conclusion I can draw from observing these threads.

Hi Spacespider,
This could be a possibility...

Why so rude?


Your excessive self esteem and arrogance, put your explaination in the trash bin.

They didn't. The orbital map you posted clearly shows the name of the comet, and it's not ISON.

As for the "object" that was explained in the other thread. It's three images taken by the Hubble, which moved between images, making it look like that

Watch the video again. They call the comet they are talking about ISON, that is C/2012 S1, and they say it will get within 0.7 AU of Mars. 1 AU is about 93,000,000 miles. 0.7 of that is just over 6,500,000 miles.

Your other picture in your OP is showing comet Siding Spring (not ISON), C/2013 A1.

That one IS a impact possibility still (all though chances are still going down for that), it will pass very, very close to Mars.

The video however is only talking about ISON, and no where in there do they say it might impact with Mars.

It was a honest mistake. There are so many comets it can be hard to keep track of which one is which.

Don't mistake my confidence for arrogance, Luke.

People that are still perpetuating the myth that comet ISON actually looks like that triangle are delusional and incapable of discerning fact from fantasy, and posess no ability to recognise the clear explanation for this "phenomenon" and the evidence that supports it.

I think "headless chicken" is an accurate description at this point.

Yes I notice that. I post that image only for show the path.

Thx for explanation, however, erik


But, now: I understood well
? Are There two different Comets could Fly By Mars, in one year distance?

Yep! Two comets, C/2012 S1, also known as ISON, and the 2nd comet C/2013 A1 also known as Siding Spring.

The designation numbers tell us what it is and when discovered. "C" for comet, the next number is the year it was discovered, and the letter number tells us the month.

There are a LOT of comets, and different kinds of comets. Worse: we tend to name comets after the person or observatory that found it. Siding Spring is a observatory, and more than one comet has the name "Siding Spring". That's why the designation numbers is important.

Here is a list of Non-Periodic Comets

Hi Neo .... it could just be that some people havent seen that picture showing the path of the comet superimposed onto the shape of the comet .... I think once youve seen that picture it becomes obvious why the comet looks like it does .... and having read all the other thread it does seem that many people missed the important post which cleared up the mystery .... I also read your frustration in that thread too ... so just because someone hasnt read the solution doesnt mean they are "whatever you said", it just means they havent read the answer .... Arken brings alot of cool info to this site and deserves respect IMO ... anyway just saying ...

and anyway isnt this thread about a fly by/impact with mars? ....
