huh?
its just pockets of very low temp gas
as it melts and steams out.

how soon they forget this?


You've seen asteroids like this before?

Do you have any links to their pictures?

Yeah, it was all over the news. Google it, many sources.

All of our recent geomagnetic disturbances point to an approaching celestial object. If it isnt illuminated in the visible light spectrum, it wouldnt be easy to detect.

How can an object in the Solar System not be illuminated in the visible spectrum? The Sun is a very bright light source, in case you haven't noticed.

A space lighthouse?
Like a space bouy for navigating safely through asteroid field.

It's a hole in the Matrix.

The Real Truth is just on the other side.


This is very interesting s + f

That is a really weird object!


Just letting my imagination go wild for a second....
maybe it is the core of a smashed planet rotating around.

Can't wait to hear more about it no matter what it is.

Looks absolutely Divine. Say, where is this "Thing" , in relationship with Ceres?

S & F for you! Fascinating find.

I've no guess as to what it is, but the dreamer in me hopes it's groundbreaking and opens up to greater discovery.

It is hard to say what it is when you don't see it moving.

It looks like a fragments, giant formations of something within the visible spectrum of Hubble being eroded as it moves very fast in space. Because space is not completely empty and gasses or some unknown force is there thus creating a slight friction that is amplified with speed like comets that travel at 150,000 km/h.

It seems to be moving away spiraling clockwise. Or better yet the jet seems to be shooting clockwise.

Sirius b is invisible to the naked eye. Not even the light of its companion sirius a can illuminate it.

If the mystery object's magnetic field is powerful enough, its possible for light to be obscured.

I asked in the other thread..
Could it be an asteroid that heated up and began venting from various locations on it?

I'm not going to guess what it's venting or why (I was thinking melting ice at first, but I think I read it wasn't made of ice).

Maybe what mother shypton says about six faery dragon or what so ever come true, and this is what she mean...
and about extermination of human kind maybe happened when the third world war occure...

Here's a slightly different picture


oh! Wow!

I know this isn't a comet, but it reminds me of comets depicted in ancient folk tales and paintings., and rock art.

the Mawangdui silk expecially.

If you took away that bright light source you're calling sirius A, Sirius B would be 100% visible with aid, in the visible light spectrum.

We seem to be thinking in the same direction. Love your avatar

Oh, yea, after thought

Its like this one.

It too had 6 tails and did fly by of Earth.

Wikipedia Reference Great Comet of 1744
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Comet_of_1744
en.wikipedia.org...

or one of other multi-tailed comets recorded by Ancient Asians.

Here's an older example from 2010.
An asteroid losing dust.

And whats more important for the naysayers, even back in 2010 they had thought of the possibility that the current object we see today could exist...

In one such scenario, a small asteroid's rotation increases from solar radiation and loses mass, forming the comet-like tail.

Didn't ISON get popped by a CME a few days ago?

This is pure speculation ... but what is hidden in plain sight?



Comets have particle and ion tails!

Space craft can use particle accelerators and ion drives as propulsion!

Nasa wanted to capture an asteroid to use as a spacestation!


The White House's Office of Science and Technology is currently mulling over a proposal from Caltech scientists that describes a plan to capture a near-Earth asteroid and bring it into the moon's orbit. If approved, the $2.6 billion plan would see the development of a robotic spacecraft that would transport a 500-ton asteroid to the lunar orbit by 2025 where it could be mined for resources and even converted into a base for human habitation. At the same time, it would also offer an unprecedented opportunity to jump-start a mission to Mars — and even launch missions into deep space.
The proposal was put together by the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS), a group that is investigating the feasibility of identifying, capturing, and returning an asteroid to the vicinity of Earth. The report, a collaborative effort involving scientists from NASA Ames, Goddard Space Flight Center, the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, and many other institutions, is an effort to explore the ways in which space-based natural resources can be exploited. And indeed, given the tremendous costs of sending material into orbit, it's an idea that makes a lot of sense.




Maybe it is occupied and under control?...



... And perfectly undercover!

I believe that it is more than just a rock!
