Looks a lot like what they did was..buy themselves some time. For what?
Ofcourse not likely a craft, but should we be concerned for other reasons? Again probably not.
I'm sure if this comet was a threat everyone's safety would be priority one, and instead of reading about Syria the headlines would read...




Thx for the post op!

I had to laff at everyone's safety being number 1. Haha you have heard that we're nothing but oxygen thieven resource takers right? Our Government seems to be buying up Ammo faster then a house fire. I'm sure they're looking out for our safety. That's why when we overwhelming said no to Syria... They beat the War drums anyway.

going over the posts

i guess i``ll open the can of worms

looking at the images of the comet...i got to say...i think it needs a new category of identification

there is obviously significant levels of chemical reactions going on... not typical of an incomming comet covered in ice.... consistantly/proportionatly burning up as it gets closer to the sun

and now...
the functioning sattellite, losing communication as it approached...could it be interference?
if so
im sorry, but for me, thats a second indication, that this "comet"...is behaving differently....

i dont want to commit to any "trail of thought" just yet

but at the mo...thinking over it all day....i rekon it could react in some way, as it approaches the sun...ie. maybe explode or something else

what do you lot think?

I guess this kind of news is effectively asking to be taken as a conspiracy theory, but don't forget that there are astronomers with big telescopes all around the world taking pictures of ISON and performing various measurements and calculations. It's not like we need to rely on what NASA says about this comet.

If you think ISON is displaying non-typical behaviour, inform the astronomy community and present your findings. The comet is up there for all (with a decent telescope) to see and study, and the astronomy community is very open and cooperative. You cannot hide something like this from the public.

Cool, now what about this.....
Remember the view of ISON with a friend dragging along with it....that hasn't been addressed in this thread, what happened to that school of thought....so, on the youtube sector.....that's a biggy on the menu....." ISON is not alone "....

What "friend"? Links / pictures / videos please. This might have been adressed in Space&Exploration forum. Do you mean the two streaks seen in the stacked Hubble image? Those are multiple and stretched images of the comet's nucleus, due to the fact that the Hubble was tracking the background stars and galaxies instead of the comet, while the telescope and the comet were constantly moving.

so your saying the "shutter time" on the hubbles camera lens... because its long...gives the image a dragged effect

but... would it create a significant second body??

And its going to be bright at the solstice,13 is an unlucky number,i-son of god?sion-2012olympics,its not alone,the dimmed nasa image ,deep impact losing contact,brightening and dimming on hourly basis-i think the can of worms has been opened,this comet is dynamite for a.t.s and who doesn't like a nice little bit of doomporn.

I look forward to any spectacle ison puts on for us,if any.

Could you please be more specific about what you think is not typical?

Deep Impact/EPOXI is NOT approaching comet C/2012 S1 (which the media have dubbed "ISON"). Deep Impact has in fact been flying away from Comet C/2102 S1 (ISON) for a while now.

Due to the locations of Deep Impact, the comet, and Earth, there are only certain windows of opportunity fro Deep Impact to take pictures of the comet, and certain windows of opportunity to send that information back to Earth.

There was some unknown communications glitch which has prevented (at least for now) the spacecraft from sending that data back to Earth. The mission controllers on Earth only "talk" to the Deep Impact/EPOXI probe about once a week, and last communicated with it last week. It is possible that the data is on the spacecraft and that data will be sent later, IF they can fix the communications problem -- or it is possible that the problem may have prevented the data from the comet investigation from ever getting to the spacecraft in the first place. Therefore, there may be no data to send to Earth this time.

Deep Impact has previously taken pictures of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) in the past.

The "second body" is the result of stacking separate exposures together. If I took an image of a room with you walking across it, then took another image when you have moved some distance, and stacked the images together, you would appear in two places at once. When posted to Godlike Productions, or here on ATS, you could claim that you have a double who's following you!

Where is ison?


Here you go...

theskylive.com...

hey thanks,ison doesnt seem to have a tail,and its closer to the sun than earth.
Neat link now bookmarked.


That particular page isn't showing you a live image of the comet. Rather, it is using the "fuzzy dot" to show the current position of the comet plotted against the background stars, based on the most up-to date orbital elements.*

However,

If you follow the link in the lower-left corner of the page, where it says,
"Follow blog.ison2013.org... if you are interested in daily pictres of Comet ISON." (sic)
then you will see the latest photographs of the comet.

*I am guessing, but I bet they use the "fuzzy dot" icon because the direction of the tail changes over time, and it's simply a hassle to have to update that detail on an otherwise automated plot.

Thankyou very much. I hope it turns out to be great spectacular comet. I was young when i saw halebop and i was in awe. I hope this comet will have similar effects on the xbox/internet generation. I can dream.....

dude
that ticker is going down awfully fast

when doesit start pealing away and start moving away from the earth..at the mo. its.. "422,637 000 km" from the earth

If it's a comet, good. . .if not, even better. Either way oranges are still a good source of Vitamin C.

This link below should help you. It is the "JPL Small-Body Database Browser" for Comet C/2012 S1, and shows the distance (in AUs) of the comet to the Earth, and also the distance of the comet to the Sun. You can change the dates to look ahead and behind to see where the comet will be relative to the rest of the solar system in the future, or look to see where it was in the past.

JPL Small-Body Database Browser -- Comet C/2012 S1
Note: viewing the diagram in the link requires the installation of a java applet


Going by the info in this link, the comet begins to get farther away from Earth on December 27. However, in actuality the comet begins to fly away from the ecliptic plane of the solar system earlier than that (on November 29), but the distance between the comet and Earth continues to get smaller until December 27 because of the motion of the Earth -- not only the motion of the comet.

Ison is not just an average every day comet.
A comet like Ison has not been seen in our lifetimes.

I can't wait until it becomes visible to the naked eye. Should be quite a show.

You mean "Maybe".

As with any sungrazing comet Comet C/2012 S2 (commonly known as 'ISON', even though that was a misnomer, and was never intended to be its name) may get smaller or even disintegrate all together as it reaches its closest approach to the Sun.

Granted, there is a decent chance that this may in fact be "the comet of the century", but there is also a decent chance it may not.

I'm lucky enough to remember Comet Hale-Bopp very well. It was a spectacular sight to see in the sky for the several weeks that it was visible. There is a chance that "ISON" may even be better, and I really hope it is. However, I am fully aware that it may fizzle out on its way around the Sun.

We'll see.

the most intriguing thing for me is:



EPOXI took images of Comet ISON on January 17, 2013, showing that the comet’s brightness varied on a timescale of hours



also, if they know the trajectory...then it should be fine...right





The "orbital elements" for Comet Ison show that it passes behind the Sun relative to us. But what actually happens when it gets close to the Sun is anyone's guess. It could be spaghettified, blow itself apart into dust, split into smaller comets and fall into the Sun, or just slingshot out into space for another few hundred years.
