“We are building a domestic army.” – Marine Corp Colonel
Keep in mind as you watch the videos below that IMO everyone’s an amateur when it comes to attempting to describe the ever-chancing trajectories, contents, new behaviors, and component structure of comets. Comets are dynamic, constantly mutating, morphing, very enigmatic high speed space objects. I don’t feel any person or space agency on earth is an expert on these matters.
I found the close-up zoomed photos of Comet Ison coming out of Russia to be quite extraordinary, if they are real. Those images could not possibly be anymore different than the “dolled up Hollywood style” Comet Ison photos released by our own space agencies here in the states. [ Things that make you go hmmmm.]
As one might have expected, the passing of Comet Ison has inspired all kinds of citizen reporter videos and photo analysis. Take it all with a grain of salt, but DO have a look at some alternative analysis of this cosmic space traveler that does not come out of the highly airbrushed 5th grade vernacular of NASA public news reporting.
As usual, my posting of these news videos constitutes neither an endorsement, nor a rebuttal, of their contents. Be sure to check out the reports in “related videos” as well. Feel free to share.
As the famous phrase goes, “You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.“
Last week we saw reports and photos of a wild looking, mutating six tailed asteroid. This week it appears Comet Ison has become neon blue and is apparently sprouting a second tail. The much ballyhooed space visitor to our solar system also has new competition for “most popular comet of 2013″ – newly discovered “Comet Lovejoy” which observers say is now visible also and brighter in the evening sky than Ison. [ Hmmm. ]
But it gets even better. The David Vose news channel on YT posted a report where it is posited than Comet Ison, is, in fact, the much discussed and dreaded NIBIRU, and may be as big as a brown dwarf star. But don’t run down the stairs and lock yourself into your bunker just yet. I don’t think their assessment is anywhere close to true. I included the video anyway. It’s entertaining, at the least.
Not to be outdone, since so many eyes are now on space, Lady Gaga decided to capitalize on the momentary fascination with all things celestial that grow tails, and has announced she will soon sing from space:
Wouldn’t it be great if she just stayed out there, floating mindlessly in the empty vacuum of space with her many heads and tails spraying out all around her, and never come back? One can always hope.
Below are some of the assorted citizen journalist and official news reports I have rounded up from this week’s deluge which cover just part of the ever more strange and inexplicable goings on in space this month. Scientists are scratching their heads and amateur astronomers are going nuts over these newest developments, caught be Hubble and other telescopes.
