I’m starting to get the chills about Comet ISON. I can’t help it. With practically every telescope turned the comet’s way fewer than three short weeks before perihelion, every week brings new images and developments. The latest pictures show a brand new tail feature emerging from the comet’s bulbous coma. For months, amateur and professional astronomers alike have watched ISON’s slowly growing dust tail that now stretches nearly half a degree or a full moon’s diameter. In the past two days, photos taken by amateur astronomers reveal what appears to be a nascent.


This is a must read article in my opinion:

So, very soon we`ll know what will be the outcome

These are the 3 possible scenarios:

I`d love we could have scenario #3

I'd really like a comet visible to the naked eye because that's what I've been hoping for.

I don't buy all the conspiracy theories with ISON, but I do lean toward the idea that it's not exactly the traditional comet. I think maybe it's a little more rocky that normal, maybe more like the meteor with the six tails discovered earlier this past week.

If that's the case maybe it will have a leg up on surviving the sun, then we just have to hope it has enough oomph to make a nice tail.

Ison spelled backwards spells Nosi. Maybe it's a cosmic traveller that's come here to be "nosey" and spy on our solar system.

Scenario 4

Comet ison doesn't disintegrate but does break apart sending only enough
material to earth to wipe out the eastern seaboard.

Purely speculation of course yet not indifferent to the previous three.
Just say'in.

From all the Comets I've followed I've learned that in order for it to change trajectory it would need to impact with something.

If it broke apart it would still continue on its project path...albeit in smaller pieces.

Given the amount of stars your post is getting maybe with enough wishful thinking everyones thoughts could influence the comet to change trajectory and kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people, children and babies feeling that lovely sensation of breathing water before slipping away into the depths of the unknown....all because most people are too gutless to enact change themselves instead wanting a giant reset button.

Sorry Randy....but that type of wish/hope is a complete waste of energy.

Yeaeh ! Or maybe if it breaks up, it stands a better chance to
impact one of the stars I've gotten and change trajectory just as you say.
Or possibly something else. Any way I was just say'in.
Sorry about the stars.

Comet Ison is beautiful! I hope that we get a lovely light show from her.

Maybe with a change of DOOOOOOM!

Haha, just kidding


But she is beautiful.

I don`t think this scenario will happen.....unless ISON is an UFO under disguise

My god, can't we have one Ison post without people laying words in the OP's mouth? We are only half a post long and already people are filling this thread with garbage. No Doomporn, just a nice picture with an article.

OP S&F!

I do think its interesting to see this development right after Huble found that mystery comet with 6 tails. Its always about timing ya know

That's a great photo, but the next day those dust strands got pushed into the main tail, and the comet looks more streamlined again. But it got brighter! (the image below, taken the next day, used a shorter exposure)


Big kudos to Damian Peach for taking these amazing images, almost every day.
