I have recently been told some information that I need either confirming or debunking. I am not an astronomer, not even an amateur one so I need help
with this from people in the know.
The info I received was that the Comet P76 struck Mars on June 3rd 2000 ... and the maximum solar flare also occurred on that date, sending a
gravitational surge towards Mars.
The message then continues that ... there is no confirmation that the two moons of mars are still in orbit and that NASA is not talking nor is the
European Space Agency, means that the reports from amateur astronomers have seen a moon size object floating around the earth, which is suggested that
it was captured as it crossed the path of the earth orbit, drawn towards the sun from Mars orbit.
So - is this true. Did the comet hit mars and are Phobos and Deimos still in Martian orbit. (I had already heard that one of the moons was in a
declining orbit and would eventually impact mars, but this was not to happen for some millions of years).
