Hi my friend here the solar fleet flyby toward the dengerous sun..

Because NASA's twin STEREO probes are designed to observe the sun, they can see sundiving comets even when the glare becomes intense. Yesterday, Comet ISON joined Earth, Mercury, and Comet Encke in the field of view of STEREO-A's Heliospheric Imager. Click on the image to view ISON's grand entrance:



"The dark 'clouds' of stuff you see coming from the right are density enhancements in the solar wind, and these are what are causing all the ripples you see in comet Encke's tail," explains Karl Battams of NASA's Comet ISON Observing Campaign. "I can pretty much promise you that we're going to see ISON's tail doing that in a couple of day's time, but on a much larger scale!"

Battams points out another exciting development: Comet Encke and Comet ISON are converging for a photogenic close encounter. "No they're not going to hit each other - in reality they are millions of miles apart - but as seen from the STEREO-A spacecraft, they are going to get very close!" he says. "We are probably a couple of days away from seeing two comets almost side-by-side in that camera, with long tails flowing behind them in the solar wind. To say that such an image will be unprecedented is rather an understatement." Stay tuned for that

For some reason Cheesy If I could I would make a ship for you so you could jump on that comet and go "Weeeee" through the universe

Let's just say that these images are among the most interesting comet images ever captured. I didn't realize the solar wind could be recorded and its effects seen so clearly in the tails of the comets.

I know that there has long been a theory that comets seed life on planets.

Maybe it's just me, but those comets in the video look insanely similar to videos I've seen of sperm making their way to an egg to fertilize it and seed life in humans and animals.

Another example of the micro following the macro perhaps?

A heads up to anyone interested...the science channel is having a special event airing on the 7th of Dec. 10:00 p.m. est. The show is called Super Comet Ison. In the preview they were calling once in a life time. It seems odd they are airing it on Dec 7th. Do they know ison is going to survive the sun? Or am I wrong here on closest approach date?

I can't help thinking that it looks a lot like ISON overtaking Encke in a race to fertilize an egg


Really an amazing view of comets interacting with the solar wind. S&F

Guess there's a good reason why they actually call that theory: Panspermia

Cheesy. You are one of the reasons I joined ATS. You always come up with great images and info concerning ISON. Looking forward to Perihelion!
