all major news channels are reporting it didn,t survive and thats from nasa,now i,m guessing its true even tho i want to hold out hope they are wrong but i doubt nasa would want to look like complete fools if a bright comet appeared on the horizon.
It is now clear that Comet #ISON either survived or did not survive, or... maybe both. Hope that clarifies things.
I LOLed when I read that, because I am not at all clear with what is up with this comet.
I see so many saying it survived... many saying that it didn't... I can't find any noteworthy sources saying ISON is alive. Everything I'm seeing says that what we are seeing is a remnant.
no all things fall at the same rate regardless of mass. Explosive power may push a few chunks of track a tad. I more concerned about the ion tail linking the earth and the sun. The tails flap about quite a bit.we will know in a few days as the solar wind excelerates the ion tail towards earth.Some brilliant auroras perhaps
I'm asking myself , if part of this comet has burned of and the mass decreases wouldn't that influence the trajectory in some way..?
I mean the gravity of the sun stays the same to me but the mass of the object doesn't .?edit on 0b24America/ChicagoFri, 29 Nov 2013 07:01:24 -0600vAmerica/ChicagoFri, 29 Nov 2013 07:01:24 -06001 by 0bserver1 because: (no reason given)
Comet ISON says "I'm not dead yet".
From this link
Faint Comet #ISON (upper right) from STEREO A HI1 Dec 1 21:18..
Its actually easier to see if you go to the website and make yourself an animated slideshow.
- From the dropdown box, select "AHEAD HI 1"
- Select "slideshow"
- Select either the date range aroundf now, or either just the last 40 images.
If this is indeed comet ISON then doomsdayers can pack away thier stuff in preparation for the next comet, because, as expected, as predicted, it is moving up and out of the plane of Earths orbit, as expected.
