something to keep an eye on. The press has been
playing it down which always makes one sit up and
Notice we never
really get detailed analysis from any of these mega
observatory installations. Maybe a Hubble pic here
and there but always superficial information, as if
we’re not supposed to know about the full realities
of what’s going on out there.
That certainly fits their strangulating, elitist,
eons old “need to know basis” meme.
That ISON will be its closest to the earth near the
winter solstice is significant in itself, never mind
the sun being in a magnetic shut down in this
general time due to its magnetic pole shift now
more importantly is the fact that we could easily
pass through its debris field. That in itself is
clearly something that is worth paying attention to.
Researchers have discovered that major pandemics
have taken place on the planet during solar magnetic
shut downs since ions are not deflected from earth
by the sun’s magnetic field, and they’ve proven they
arrive with alien microbes from outer space. Our
planet’s magnetic field is also at a low ebb,
compounding our vulnerability.
Space weather and conditions are important to keep
track of, just as we track geopolitical change,
consciousness uprisings, and the movements of the
heavens in astrological science.
Keep on integrating all this information, it’s
And don’t let our current circumstances get you
down. We are the force we’ve been waiting for. Be
enthused! The god or “spirit in us” awaits
activation and realization.
Now TURN - IT - ON!!
Hubble View of Comet ISON
ESA’s space missions are getting ready to observe an icy visitor to
the inner Solar System:
Comet ISON (C/2012
S1), which might also be visible in
the night sky later this year as a naked eye object.
The comet was discovered in images taken on 21 September 2012 by
astronomers Artyom Novichonok and Vitali Nevski using
a 40 cm-diameter telescope that is part of the
Scientific Optical Network, ISON.
the Oort Cloud, a repository of icy bodies billions
of kilometers from the Sun, ISON is on a path that will bring it
within grazing distance - 1.2 million kilometers - above the Sun’s
visible surface on 28 November.
Hubble Space Telescope took detailed images earlier
this year, such as the main image presented here from 30 April. In
this composition, the comet is set against a separately imaged
background of stars and galaxies.
For some time the view of the comet from Earth was temporarily
blocked by the Sun, but it was spotted again in August, by amateur
astronomer Bruce Gary.
Astronomers around the world are now eagerly watching as the comet
draws closer, its coma - the tenuous atmosphere that surrounds the
comet’s rock–ice nucleus - becoming more pronounced as its surface
ices are heated by the Sun and transformed into gas.
Dusty debris is
suspended in the coma and swept into a tail, which will also become
more prominent as the comet approaches the Sun.
Comet ISON on 15 September
Astronomer Pete Lawrence from the UK imaged Comet ISON (shown
on 15 September, as it passed through the constellation of Cancer en
route to Leo.
Pete used a 10 cm-diameter telescope with a CCD camera
attached; the exposures totaled 40 minutes, with individual images
stacked together to produce the final result.
ESA and NASA space missions are also preparing to observe the comet.
ESA’s Mars Express starts its observation campaign, taking
photos and analyzing the composition of the comet’s coma over the
next two weeks.
The comet will be at its closest to Mars on 1
October - at a distance of 10.5 million kilometers - six times
closer than it will approach Earth.
SOHO mission will view the comet as it swings around
the Sun at the end of November, and astronomers will be waiting to
see if the comet survives its fiery encounter.
Venus Express and
Proba-2 also plan to target the comet during
November and December.
The comet will be brightest in our skies just before and in the week
after its encounter with the Sun, assuming it survives, but will
likely have faded by the time it makes its closest approach to Earth
on 26 December. It will pass Earth with no threat of impact.
Since comets are unpredictable by nature, and planet-orbiting
spacecraft are not primarily designed to observe distant comets, it
is uncertain exactly what results are to be expected.
But while we
await the results from spacecraft, there is clearly much to be seen
from the ground already.
